GWSB will host the final rounds of Deloitte Consulting’s “Battle of the Beltway” real-world business case competition for undergraduate sophomores and juniors Nov. 14-15.
In the competition, teams devise solutions to consulting cases involving an agency or branch of the federal government, such as the U.S. Navy or Federal Railroad Administration. Both have been cited in previous competitions.
In the preliminary rounds, up to nine teams of four students each compete at their respective universities. Students from any major can compete, although Deloitte advises that each team include some business and non-business majors.
Two teams from each school will advance to the final rounds to compete regionally. This year, teams are competing from GW, American, Georgetown, Howard, Princeton and Wake Forest universities; the University of Richmond, and the College of William and Mary.
