    Race & Case History

    This unique case competition was conceived in 2003 by students at the Daniels College of Business. The idea was to bring national recognition to Daniels through its distinctive curriculum in a manner which would also leverage the pristine surroundings of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. In mid-winter 2004, the students delivered an ethics-based case competition and ski race—aptly named Race & Case.

    Since 2004 top U.S. and international business schools have traveled to Colorado for the chance to compete for cash prizes and take home the Daniels Cup. Will your school join us next?
