WHAT IS GC3 - THE GLOBAL CASE COMPETITION CLUB?
GC3 (Global Case Competition Club) is a registered student organization at the University of Washington specialized in teaching and preparing students for case competitions on a local, national, and global level. We look to develop students in business research, strategy, and analytics as well as presentation skills and overall professionalism.
The Foster School of Business has sent teams to Thailand, Portugal, the Netherlands, and more in past years to compete in international case competitions. The Leadership & Executive Team is composed of 16 Foster undergraduate students accepted out of an applicant pool. These individuals are the representatives that will be sent to international competitions for the school year, and will be creating material for weekly GC3 meetings. If you are interested in applying for next year's team, please go to the "Contact Us" page and let us know!
In addition to global case competitions, GC3 will focus on promoting and preparing students for other case competitions domestically year round.
Although we operate out of the Foster School of Business, meetings are open for all undergrad students to attend. Many case competitions on campus are open to students from a variety of majors. Please note, however, that some case competitions, including all overseas case competitions, may only allow business school students to participate.
Each week will have a different focus, and over the course, we plan to cover topics such as presentation frameworks, powerpoint design, research approaches, and more. We'll touch upon industry trends and the most notable resources for research and design. We also will have various guest speakers and lecturers to lead workshops.
Case competitions allow students to thrive in the business (specifically consulting) world. This is great exposure to real-world experience and allows the student to learn and develop in a different yet effective way.
