Prince George’s High School Case Competition

Each year, the Smith undergraduate program partners with the Omega Theta chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity to sponsor a case competition compromised of students from our local Prince George’s County high schools. This is an invitation-only event, and we look forward to hosting more talented students in Spring 2022.
