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.
