On Saturday, February 14, 2015 Northwestern University will hold its 2nd annual intramural global health case competition. Teams will be made up of undergraduate and graduate students across all schools and various disciplines who will compete to develop innovative, feasible, and sustainable global health solutions. The goal of the case study competition is to train the next generation of global health leaders through a unique competition experience built upon a real-world challenge.
The application is now open. Application Deadline: January 12, 2015.
After submitting an application and being placed in a team of five, participants will have a chance to meet and practice solving sample case studies with their team. One week before the day of the competition, teams will receive the selected case and will have this one week to prepare a solution. The day of the competition, they will present their solutions to a panel of judges who are selected based on their expertise related to the case. The judges will then score the teams and announce the winner.
The first place team wins $1000 and a paid trip to Emory University in Atlanta, GA (Friday, March 27 – Saturday, March 28, 2015), where they will represent Northwestern University and compete in an international case competition that brings together teams from universities from the US and abroad. The second place team wins $600.
