Entrepreneurship Case Competition
All first-year students of the Sawyer Business School are required to complete a business foundation course. A key requirement is the end-of-semester competitive presentation on supporting and presenting a presentation to a group of executives. Nearly 650 students forming 130 teams present recommended solutions to nearly 75-100 executives detailing strategies related to a current business situation.
The Entrepreneurship Case Competition runs two rounds, where all teams present their strategic recommendations, and the best and implementable strategy (as determined by the executive judges) from each section, advances to the final round. During the final round, Suffolk University’s Case Competition Team is selected by an external executive panel and sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship to represent the university in local, regional, and national case competitions.
This course has been a crucial part of the SBS experience for the past 20 years and continues to serve as the foundation of our students’ success. The presentations occur during the fall and spring semesters each academic year.
