JHGCC Fall Case Competition open for registration

Apply now to secure your spot for our JHGCC 10th Fall Case Competition on Friday, Nov. 15, at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. The JHGCC Fall Case Competition offers you the opportunity to formulate strategic recommendations to a business challenge and win up to $500 in the process! Plus Bain and Company, The Boston Consulting Group, L.E.K., ClearView Healthcare Partners, Booz Allen Hamilton, Promidian, and more are coming to see you compete.

No prior consulting experience is required. Many participants of past competitions have successfully pursued strategy consulting positions afterward, aided by the feedback they received and connections they made during the Case Competition. Additionally, many of the consulting firms in attendance are willing to sponsor work visas for international students.
