Who can do the Midwest Business Librarian Case Competition?
This case competition is open to all undergraduate students regardless of major. The teams should be 4-5 students. At Purdue, at least one student should have taken MGMT 175, GS 175 or MGMT 190. For Butler, Notre Dame, IUPUI, IPFW, and IU, please check your local requirements. Two of the students need to be freshmen or sophomore level (doesn’t have to be the same as MGMT 175 participant).
