Olin Sustainability Case Competition Feb. 8

The fourth annual Olin Sustainability Case Competition will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, in Simon Hall’s May Auditorium.

Titled “Blight, Plight and Urban Flight,” the competition offers students an opportunity to make an impact at WUSTL through creative solutions to real problems affecting the community.

The Olin Sustainability Case Competition (OSCC) began during the 2009-2010 academic year as a way to increase awareness and expand educational opportunities about sustainable business practices at the Olin Business School.

Open to all Washington University students in both undergraduate- and graduate-level programs, the case competition provides participants with a chance to learn about practical, real-world applications of corporate responsibility and sustainability concepts, so that they can make an impact in the world around them.

The OSCC is presented by the Olin MBA Programs office in conjunction with the Olin Strategy and Consulting Association and the Washington University chapter of Net Impact.

Designed as a traditional business case study, the competition is based on a current business problem and prepared with the assistance of leading experts in the field of sustainability and Olin faculty.

Any student enrolled in any academic program at WUSTL may participate. Teams can be made up of two to five students from any school.
