The SEAD Case Competition offers a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students from diverse schools and disciplines to work together in teams of four to five to tackle real-time challenges facing an innovative health care initiative in the developing world.
Student teams will work through a real-life case scenario and develop concise, strategic recommendations for a client organization; the case will require an interdisciplinary approach that may involve issues related to policy, marketing, behavior change, and business. Teams have approximately three days to work on the case study and compete against other teams by submitting their recommendations to a panel of judges. Finalists will have the opportunity to present and discuss their proposed solutions with the client as well as a number of the judges.
Students can register to participate as a self-selected team, as a partial team (requesting additional team members), or as individuals (to be placed on a team). In addition to the obvious educational benefits and networking opportunities, students will also compete for a cash prize.
