Participating in competitions is a rite of passage for high performing business school students. Winning them is another matter. Robinson graduate and undergraduate students rarely come home empty-handed. The college not only prepares students for victory but also hosts several highly regarded competitive events. Here are some highlights from fall 2016.
Atlanta Startup Battle
Business Valuation Challenge
The Robinson College took over the Private Business Valuation Challenge this year from Seattle Pacific University. David Beard of the Department of Finance organized the competition, in which teams from 25 universities vied to come to Atlanta to present their valuation of a private firm. Robinson fielded two teams who, under the rules of the competition, were allowed to compete but ineligible to receive the awards. That said, the team from the college’s Finance Honors Program won the competition by a wide margin.
Clayton State Pitch Competition
Healthcare IT Slam
Mercedes-Benz USA eMobility Case Competition
MRM GSA Inaugural Mini Case Competition
National Black MBA Association Graduate Case Competition
University of Tennessee VolHacks

The bottom line? Robinson students are battle-tested and ready to add value.
