UVM Family Enterprise Case Competition

About FECC

The annual Family Enterprise Case Competition (FECC) prepares participants to understand the critical issues that are unique to family enterprise by applying the knowledge and expertise they have developed in the classroom to solving complex family business cases. During four tough rounds of competition, teams present their case to a distinguished panel of judges who determine which group best understood, analyzed and presented the case.

Held in Burlington, Vermont, FECC features many events other than the competition itself, allowing students and coaches the chance to interact with industry professionals and sponsoring organizations during select program meals, social events and local trips.

The FECC has received widespread acclaim and praise as one of the "most professional events" ever attended and "the organization has been excellent and the collegial learning and networking opportunity extraordinary." 

Our Involvement

Each year we send a team of three students to The University of Vermont to compete in the Annual Family Enterprise Case Competition. Coached by Professor Albert James, the students are selected through a competitive process after having completed the Managing the Family Enterprise Course as initial preparation.
