MBA Case Competition and Golf Tournament

February 20-22, 2020
Gainesville, Florida

Welcome to the inaugural Florida MBA Case Classic, taking place Feb 20-22, 2020. This unique golf-and-case event will welcome top MBA programs to participate in a strategy-based case competition, as well as a separately judged golf scramble.

A team of four MBA students will create and present an in-depth recommendation addressing a business challenge provided by our corporate sponsor. These teams will have the opportunity to showcase their business acumen.

The next day, teams will head to the Mark Bostick golf course to compete in a golf scramble (as well as a putt and chip competition) and network with high level company executives. All golfing skill levels are welcome!

Our event will then close with a banquet to recognize top performers, in both the case competition and golf scramble.

Applications will open in September 2019.
