Beta Gamma Sigma’s annual Global Leadership Summit allows BGS members to advance their leadership development while building relationships with fellow leaders from BGS chapters around the world. During the Summit, students participate in a carefully cultivated series of leadership sessions designed to build upon each other to culminate in an intensive team competition. This year’s Summit took place November 2-5 in Orlando, FL.
The Team Case Competition allowed 35 teams of business students to collaborate and provide a solution to a complex business scenario. Each of the teams presented to a panel of judges and the five category winning teams showcased their business solutions to the full group of Summit attendees.
The case competition judges consisted of business and community leaders, BGS’ leadership team, BGS Board Members, and Deans from AACSB accredited business programs. Their presentations were evaluated against established criteria, including evidence of preparation, content, consideration for innovation, delivery, and discussion. Each presentation ended with a question and answer session with the judges.
The USI chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma was established in 1998 and today has more than 600 members.
