What is a case competition?
A business case competition is a competition that helps gain and strengthen the skills essential for youth as they enter the world of business. At Prosper, we aim to develop these important skills, such as critical thinking and public speaking, that are needed to guarantee success in your future careers. Our mission is to engage youth in the business world through workshops, panels of industry professionals, and case competitions. Whether you are interested in accounting, marketing, finance, or business in general, our conference has an array of activities for everyone.
