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. GC3 is composed of 20 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 quarterly GC3 bootcamps. 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.
We currently have 20 members preparing for competitions in Spain, Serbia, Montreal, California, and more. Applications for next year's group will be released in Spring, but our quarterly Case Competition Bootcamps are open to ALL students!
Acceptance into GC3 leads to weekly meetings to develop case competition skills and assisting in hosting quarterly Bootcamps. The Bootcamps span 1/2 of a day and include workshops and a case simulation for case comp. We invite case comp veterans and newbies alike! GC3 members also compete in mock competitions within our group to prepare as best as possible.
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.
