High School Case Competition

The Office of Undergraduate Studies partnered with the Omega Theta chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, Business Fraternity sponsored  the Smith School's first ever high school case competition.

Members of Alpha Kappa Psi led mini-lectures where they taught high school students basic concepts of business. The students then worked on a case presentation and presented to a panel of judges to apply the concepts that they learned and demonstrate their understanding of a real business problem. The event included over 100 high school students from 5 high schools from Prince George’s County (Suitland, Oxon Hill, Parkdale, Largo, Flowers and Laurel) as well as support from Mcgladrey, PwC, and Ernst & Young. It was described by Dean Victor Mullins as "one of his memorable experiences". Congratulations to the reigning champions from Oxon Hill High School. We look forward to welcoming back Oxon Hill students to defend their title for the 2nd Annual High School Case Competition.
