3. Event: Case Competition
a. VANCOUVER+acumen holds an annual Case Competition, which allows for students to step into the shoes of a consultant, challenging them to think critically and differently. The purpose is to build on the theory students learn in school, giving them a different approach to business problem solving.
ACUMEN is looking for volunteers for their mock case competition (November 3rd) and case competition (November 23rd) who are interested in learning more about business problem solving and social entrepreneurship. The case competition will be held at UBC, and volunteers would have expected duties (registration, minor logistics, time keeping, etc) while working alongside other Chapter members.
