Local Government Case Competition
Register by November 5 – deadline coming up soon
Send résumé to Brandon.Forbes@alleghenycounty.us
The Local Government Case Competition is an annual event that engages graduate students from local universities to identify creative solutions to difficult social problems. Competing teams work under pressure to solve a real problem, using simulated business conditions such as time-critical deadlines and incomplete information to formulate action-oriented recommendations. It is a great opportunity to work with peers from different schools, network with local public and nonprofit leaders, and win cash prizes!
