CaseIT is an annual international undergraduate business case competition with a strong focus in Management of Information Systems (MIS). Each team consisting of three undergraduate students in their senior year of study and a team coach goes though two rounds of presentation, after a 24-hour deliberation period. Participants then present their team’s solution to a judging panel of industry professionals.
