Have questions now? We have answers:

How does it work? Teams of four graduate students compete to solve a business case with an ethical dilemma before taking on a race challenge at Breckenridge Ski Resort. Total scores are calculated weighting 90% on case competition scores and 10% on the ski race.

Where is it? Both the Daniels vs. Daniels case competition and the international case competition will be held at Breckenridge Ski Resort.

How much does it cost? It’s free for students to register/participate in the challenge. Ski passes will be provided to students without an Epic Pass, however, students are responsible for transportation and lodging.

Why should I do it? Create some phenomenal memories while you show off your business skills, network with alumni and business leaders, and compete for prizes.

What can I win? In addition to competing for swag and cash prizes, the winning team will get bragging rights and guaranteed entry into Daniels’ International Race & Case competition.

Who’s on a team? This competition is open to all Daniels College of Business graduate students. You can put together your own team of four or you can sign up as an individual to be placed on a team with other free agents. Teams must have at least one male and one female competitor.

What schools come to international? Each year 11 schools from around the U.S. and the world come to compete. Recent years have included American University, Auburn University, University in Lithuania and the University of Florida. This year the lineup will be just as tough!
