Race & Case

Every year four graduate students are selected to represent the University of Utah in the Race and Case Competition held in Denver, Colorado. This competition gives students a unique opportunity to apply critical thinking and ethical decision making to real world situations. Not to mention a chance to conquer fresh Rocky Mountain powder.

The competition, hosted by the Daniels College of Business Graduate Business Student Association at the University of Denver, is two-pronged — it’s a business ethics case competition and Alpine ski challenge. The business ethics case counts for 80 percent of the scoring and the ski racing comprises the remaining 20 percent.

Team Composition

The team will consist of 4 MBA students, 2 of these students must be female. Skiing is not a requirement, but 2 out of the 4 team members must be able to ski.
