CGCC CASE Competition
The Cornell Graduate Consulting Club in partnership with Cornell Transportation will be hosting a sustainability themed case competition for graduate students. This is a great opportunity for students interested in consulting to showcase your skills while addressing an issue that is of high relevance for the campus community.
The case competition will be a fun, low-key way for you to experience the process of analyzing a case and presenting your recommendations – great practice for interviews and internships. If you haven’t RSVP’d for the competition yet, there’s still time! And don’t worry if you don’t have a team, part of the meeting will be facilitating team formation, so just bring yourself!
For the case competition, we are seeking innovative yet realistic proposals for a new campus circulation transportation system. The full case prompt and associated data files (you have the option to use this data as well as any other data) can be found in the following Box folder.
Note: This case is not a hypothetical situation. The client (Cornell Transportation Service) would like real feasible recommendations that they can incorporate into improving Cornell’s transportation system.
To enter, please submit a presentation describing your solution to email@example.com by Wednesday April 24th 5pm. Teams should be between 2-4 members and 5-6 teams will be selected to present in front of judges from Transportation Services and the Johnson School. During the competition on the 26th, teams will have 10 minutes to present their solution followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with the judges.
If you would like to compete but do not have a team, please refer to the following Google spreadsheet (Cornell gmail sign-in required) for other students also looking for a team.
The CGCC Exec Board will be at the Big Red Barn Wednesday April 17th at 5 pm. Come have a drink with us, and bring us any questions you have about your work on the case competition and about joining the Executive Board next year.
We will be recruiting new Exec members in May – returning PhD students (especially those who will not be entering their final year) and second year Master’s students are welcome to apply. We will circulate the application process at a later date, but if you’re interested, start to think about how you will not just defend why you want to be on the Board, but what you will bring to the club and your ideas for improvement.
