The Graduate Student Case Study is a great opportunity for graduate students to put the theory they have learned in the classroom into practice. During the Case Study Meeting on Thursday, March 23, all participants will receive the case and pairing graduate students from different institutions will form teams on-site, then pairs will select their time slot. Each team will have the opportunity to deliver their solution and will be asked questions following their presentations by a team of judges. The awards for the student case study will be announced during the Closing Luncheon on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
