The Elite 8 Brand Managment Case Competition will take place November 7 - 9, 2013.
More information about the 2013 competition will be released as it becomes available. If you have questions about participation or sponsorship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now in its 12th year, this competition brings together top brand management students, professionals and academics from across the country for a three-day competition highlighting the challenges facing brand managers in today's competitive marketplace.
The Challenge involves eight student teams, who are presented with a strategic brand management challenge currently faced by a partner company. The teams are given 30 hours to prepare a structured case analysis and accompanying recommendations. They present these findings to a panel of expert judges, allowing partner companies the opportunity to critically assess students' brand management, teamwork and problem-solving skills. Following the conclusion of all presentations, the participants and partners attend a social-hour and awards banquet.
The competition is held at the Carlson School of Management on the University of Minnesota's West Bank campus in Minneapolis.
Elite 8 is a student-run case competition, led by a group of Managing Partners.
