Presentations are to last no longer than 15 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A and feedback session. Time limits will be strictly enforced.
Presentations will occur at the Daniels College of Business. A random drawing will determine when each team will present.
- A panel of judges will score each presentation.
- The Case portion of the competition will make up 90% of the overall score.
- The ski/snowboard portion of the race will make up 10% of the overall score.
- The race will be held at the official EpicMix Ski Arena.
- Each participant may ski a maximum of three runs.
- Teams may accept a default time for those participants that chose not to participate in the ski/snowboard challenge.
- A handicap is used to figure snowboarders’ racing times.
Teams should consider the following broad guidelines when presenting their case:
- Consider distinctive viewpoints, such as the community, management, employees, financials, shareholders, etc.
- Convey a comprehensive understanding of the case including key issues, possible impacts and future government regulations.
- Provide strategic decision analysis including a financial analysis, if applicable.
- Present a clear resolution and demonstrate proactive management processes.

Teams are expected to use their own laptops and technologies. However, they must be compatible with the Daniels network. Teams are strongly encouraged to save and bring a copy of their presentation on a jump drive. Technological support will be available throughout the case competition.
