The Carol A. Ammon Case Competition gives University of Delaware graduate student teams the opportunity to create and present recommendations for a local company. In the preliminary round, teams present their recommendations to judges who are alumni of the UD Lerner MBA program.  The top three teams move on to the final round and present to the leadership team of the focal organization. This year’s competition will be held March 6, 2020.

The competition enhances students’ analytical and presentation skills, expands students’ business vocabulary and exposes them to a vital audience of regional corporate leaders.

The Carol A. Ammon Case Competition is made possible by the generous support of Endo Pharmaceuticals and named for the company’s founder, Carol A. Ammon.

  • ENDO Pharmaceuticals
