For the first time, every university in the Big 12 is sending a team of MBA students to compete in the Big 12 MBA Business Case Competition, sponsored by Deloitte and hosted by TCU’s Neeley School of Business.

Students arrive Thursday evening, March 26, receive the case Friday morning, take part in individual team Q&As with representatives from Deloitte Consulting, then prepare their presentations. Teams make their presentations to judges on Saturday to compete for first prize ($5,000), second prize ($3,000) and third prize ($1,000).

Judges include executives from Deloitte as well as Sabre, Alcon, Bell Helicopter, BNSF Railway, Half Price Books, Frito-Lay, Michael’s, Radio Shack, Santander USA and the TCU Board of Trustees.

Steve Pace, associate commissioner and CFO of the Big 12 Conference, and John Levis, global innovation leader with Deloitte, will attend the awards dinner to congratulate the winners.
