Do you and three of your friends or colleagues have what it takes to compete against the best and brightest young business professionals and students in the world?The Ptak Prize Global Case Competition will bring together students and young professionals from around the world to compete for the chance to win the title of Ptak Prize Global Supply Chain Case Competition winner and cash prizes.

Teams will attend one of the regional events to compete in Supply Chain Case Competition. The winning team of each regional event will get USD $1,000, vouchers for free ISCEA Certification workshop & exam sessions, and Ptak Prize Scholar Medallions.

How this works:

Teams will arrive at their respective regional location by 8:30 am.
At 9:00am teams will be presented a case study. The case will be similar in length and style to Harvard Business School cases.

Teams will have three hours starting at 9:30am to:

1. Review the case study
2. Pick out the relevant business issues
3. Develop a series of recommendations
4. Create a very informative and well thought out presentation for panel of judges.

Starting at 12:30pm each team will have up to 20 minutes to present before a panel of judges; proceeded by a 5 minute Q&A. Teams are not required to create a certain amount of slides or papers, but must use their best judgment to create a presentation that is effective and persuasive. YouTube Clips of their presentation get additional points!!

Judges will evaluate team presentations based on the quality of these areas: analysis, presentation, Q&A, and overall performance. Each regions panel of judges will be comprised of experienced academic and business professionals.

Winners will be announced at the Ptak Prize for Supply Chain Excellence Dinner that same night (6:00PM to 10:00PM).
