Global Health Business Case Competition

The Global Health Business Case Competition (GHBCC) is in its third year at the UW Foster School of Business. The competition builds on the traditional business school case competition model by bringing together students from multiple disciplines including business, engineering, and health sciences in a competitive environment. Instead of addressing a typical management or supply chain issue, students will instead tackle a critical global health challenge. Student teams will all face the same challenge and have the same short period of time to analyze the case and develop recommendations.

Following the analysis period, the teams will then present their findings and recommendations to panels of judges from the faculty and community. The competition will culminate with a networking lunch for students and judges.

One of the many benefits of the GHBCC is that the competitive and collaborative environment simulates future workplace settings that require multidisciplinary teams and creative problem solving.

GHBCC is organized by the UW Global Business Center at the Foster School of Business in partnership with the Department of Global Health.
