25th Annual International

Case Competition
NOVEMBER 13 - 14, 2020


The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University is excited to invite you to the 25th Annual International Case Competition (ICC). The competition focuses on Operations Strategy, Supply Chain, Sustainability, and Corporate Social Responsibility and provides an innovative learning platform for students to solve a current operational business challenge. The competition helps students build competencies in synthesizing information under time pressure, organizing and prioritizing issues, applying decision-making skills, and working in teams. The event also connects leading operational talent with multinational sponsor companies for networking and recruiting opportunities.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ICC will be held virtually this year to ensure safety and accessibility for participating teams and sponsoring companies.
