Case Competition


Case Competition Details

The 2018 case competition will be held on November 23 and November 24.

Teams

The Dalhousie Ethics in Action case competition is based on written case studies and will have two distinct streams: one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. All teams will be given the opportunity to present both a prepared and a live case. Teams will be made up of four students.

**Please note: Registration in the case competition is limited to one team per school per stream (each school can enter an undergraduate and a graduate team). Teams will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.**

Cases

Prepared cases are released 10 days prior to the competition.

Unprepared cases start on Saturday morning at 8:00am. Each team is given a 3-hour isolation period to respond to a fictional ethical dilemma. Undergraduate teams enter isolation at 20-minute intervals and are given 12 minutes to present, followed by a 3-minute question period. Graduate teams enter isolation at 30-minute intervals and are given 15 minutes to present, followed by a 5-minute question period.

Case presentations on Friday run from 12:00pm to 5:00pm for undergraduate teams, and 9:30am to 12:00pm for graduate teams. Case presentations on Saturday are from 11:00am to 4:00pm for undergraduate teams, and 12:30 to 3:00pm for graduate teams.
