Participants must be undergraduate students enrolled at an American college or university. Registration is limited to 15 teams maximum, with a maximum of 3 teams per school. Team members do NOT have to be from the same university.

  • Title of "WUHC x Accenture Case Competition Winner"

  • First place cash prize of $100/person and second place cash prize of $50/person

BEfore the conference:

  • Create a team of 3-4 students from any school and select a team leader. This team leader will fill out the interest form. Only one form needs to be filled out per team. Teams will be approved based on a first-come, first-served basis until the 3 team maximum is reached for a school.

  • Register your team ONLY AFTER IT HAS BEEN APPROVED. Once Evelyn Gottlieb emails you with an approval, buy the "Case Competition Team" ticket on the Eventbrite page. This gives all team members access to the entire conference; they do not need to buy individual tickets. Tickets are non-refundable.

  • Tickets are $60 per team ($15/member for a team of 4). The price is the same for a 3-member team.

The case will be provided by Accenture and will be sent to the team leader by noon EST on October 24th. Your team is required to develop a solution to the problem presented by Accenture. This solution will be presented as a slide deck. The slide deck is due to Evelyn Gottlieb, egotlieb@wharton.upenn.edu, no later than 11:59 PM EST on October 31st. 

All correspondence (e.g., sharing of case, sending slide deck, notification of time slot) will be made between the team leader and Evelyn. It is the team leader's responsibility to share this information with his/her team.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Evelyn Gottlieb, egotlieb@wharton.upenn.edu.


Check in begins at 9 AM. You will be assigned a time slot when you receive the case. You will be presenting to a panel of 2-3 judges from Accenture for up to 12 minutes followed by a few minutes of Q & A. Please bring 4 physical copies of your slide deck, printed three slides on each page single-sided.   

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Evelyn Gottlieb, egotlieb@wharton.upenn.edu.
