I have recently graduated. Can I participate?
No, participants must be considered current full-time students on October 1, 2021, when the case opens.
I will graduate in the spring. Can I participate?
Yes, team members may graduate before the end of the competition. All team members must be considered current full-time students on October 1, 2021.
I am under 18 years old. Can I participate?
No, all participants must be 18 years of age as of October 1, 2021.
I do not have a team. Can I be placed on a team at random?
No, please speak with your professor/advisor to see if other classmates are forming a team.
Do my team members and I all need to be ASCM student members?
Yes, ASCM student membership is required to participate in the Case Competition. We will conduct audits to ensure all registrants are in our system, and nonmembership will be grounds for disqualification. ASCM student membership is free for current full-time graduate or undergraduate students. Please sign up at ascm.org/join if you are not already a member.
How many members can be on a team?
Teams may consist of three-to-four people.
Do all team members have to be from the same school?
Yes, all members must be currently attending the same college or university. However, they do not all have to be from the same department. For example, a finance major can team up with operations or logistics majors.
How many teams can participate from the same school?
An unlimited number of teams can submit their solutions to the case. However, only a maximum of two teams per school may advance to the qualifying round. Schools that have more than two teams, please refer to the section on handling multiple teams from one school.
