BCG Case Competition gives HBA1s the consultant experience
- Oct 28, 2022
Taking classroom learnings and putting them into practice in real-world situations is a major part of the Ivey student experience. While students do this every day using the case method, the annual Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Case Competition is one of the HBA1s’ first opportunities to showcase how far they’ve come in only a few weeks.
Ivey HBA1 students participated in the 27th Annual BCG Case Competition on October 25-28, 2022. The competition, which is part of the Learning Through Action course, challenges students to analyze three cases in three days and present their recommendations to a variety of judges including Ivey faculty, alumni, and BCG representatives.
For the 2022 edition, students analyzed cases that involved redesigning a food service business’ store, examining inclusion at Ivey and in the workplace, and strategizing for a social enterprise facing fundraising challenges.
Congratulations to all HBA1s on successfully completing the BCG Case Competition and thank you to BCG for its continued support of this event.
