Academic case competitions allow students specializing in:
- Business Strategy
- Management of Information Systems
- Human Resources
- International Business
To hone their skills and expertise in these areas, team members will go through rigorous training throughout the year. Students competing in case competitions will work in a team and will meet once a week with an academic advisor (usually a professor within TRSM) for 3 hours to practice cutting cases and presenting them to simulate the challenges of the JDCC academic competition.
