About the Case Competition

The Business for a Better World Case Competition, an international contest now into its fourth year, is a partnership between Corporate Knights, the company for clean capitalism, and the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto. With a prize pool in 2016/2017 of $10,000, the final round of this MBA competition will see three top teams present their case analysis in front of a live panel of high-profile judges in Davos, Switzerland, coinciding with the World Economic Forum in January.

The 2016/2017 Case Competition is now complete. Check back in July 2017 for updates on next year’s competition.
