Last week, Smith Soc members from across the country put their business skills and free-market knowledge to the test in our annual case competition. Teams prepared excellent case solutions to present before a panel of expert judges.
In the end, MIT Sloan took home the gold, UVA Darden took silver, and Columbia Business School came in third for the bronze!
This year’s case examined issues surrounding Big Tech and free enterprise. In the first round of competition, teams developed business strategies for Facebook in light of pending antitrust litigation. Finalists then moved on to a second round of competition where they focused on strategies for facing a potential repeal of Section 230.
Smith Soc's multi-chapter case competition ("Case Comp") provides student chapters with the opportunity to compete against one other to devise a potential business solution to an issue with ethical, political, and philosophical implications. Each year, student chapters may apply to host the competition on their home campus or apply to send a team to compete in the Case Comp. This event was first inaugurated by the BYU Marriott School of Business in 2018.
