Aspen Institute Business & Society International MBA Case Competition
April 26, 2019

The Aspen Institute's Case Competition offers a meaningful opportunity for reflection on the significant and positive influence that a well-managed business can have on society.

The Aspen Institute's Business & Society International MBA Case Competition was founded in 2009, inspired by the Walter V. Shipley Business Leadership Competition that the Aspen Institute administered from 2002-2008, as well as by a strong desire to craft a best-in-class incentive program that encouraged future business leaders to innovate at the intersection of corporate profitability and positive social, environmental and ethical impact.

Now in its eighth year, the Competition offers a singular opportunity for students from 25 business programs worldwide to reflect on the significant influence - and potential for good - that a well-managed business can have in society. The program is consistently at capacity, with a waiting list of MBA programs forming a year in advance.

All teams must consist of either 3 or 4 students. For teams of four, at least three of the students must be MBA students; for teams of three, at least two of the students must be MBA students. One student on each team may be a masters-level graduate student in a similar course of study (e.g., M.Sc. in Management). Teams may include any combination of part-time and full-time students. Teams may have no more than one executive MBA student participant.
