OUTREACH AND DIVERSITY
In 2014, Manderson began preparations to
host a diversity case competition in 2015.
The competition is open to a select number
of undergraduate institutions. Teams
will enhance their academic experience
by analyzing a business case and then
presenting their recommendations to
corporate executives who serve as a panel
of judges. The top three teams will receive
cash awards. Students in all academic
disciplines are encouraged to participate.
Faculty and current students will provide
participants with a strong framework and
supportive learning environment with an
emphasis on teamwork.
