Nearly six years ago the deans of the SEC business schools gathered for an annual meeting that would become the launch point for a new SEC academic activity – the SEC MBA Case Competition. Since 2013, the SEC has conducted a competition that features four-person teams from each of the 14 SEC member universities.
The competition, which is held on a different SEC campus each year, provides an opportunity for SEC business schools to showcase their MBA students’ skills at solving simulated, real-world problems that cover the spectrum of business disciplines.
The 2017 competition was hosted by the University of Florida and won by the University of Georgia. In the five-year history of the competition, three different universities have claimed top honors, Florida, Georgia and the University of Alabama.
I encourage you to learn more about this year’s event by reading the short recap in this spring 2017 edition of the SECU Quarterly.
