Hull Case Competition showcases cross-disciplinary collaboration

The James M. Hull College of Business at Augusta University hosts an annual Case Competition that offers cross-disciplinary collaboration between undergraduate students to solve real world business problems.

This year, 25 students participated in the event and demonstrated their ability to apply/enhance their critical thinking skills, their classroom learning, build their resumes, network with the local business community and win cash prizes.

“The Hull Case Competition is an excellent opportunity for students to analyze and present a real-life situation involving business processes, controls, and ethics,” said Susan Murray, an assistant professor in the Knox School of Accountancy in the Hull College of Business at Augusta University. “They get to show off their skills in research, professional writing, analysis, public speaking and persuasion. It is also a great networking opportunity as the students work with area professionals, and it is a great opportunity for our potential employers to see our students in action.”
