Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the initiative to embrace responsibility for a company’s actions and encourage a positive impact on society through activities involving consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders, and the environment. CSR goes beyond what is required by regulators and promotes the betterment of business practices for sustained positive change for consumers, employees, communities, and stakeholders.
This year, Business Week’s Corporate Social Responsibility Day was sponsored by COUNTRY Financial. The 2020 Business Week Case Competition is a unique opportunity for students to apply research, analytical, and presentation skills. Teams of two to five students developed a solution to a real-life business problem within a three-hour time frame and then present to a panel of judges. Following the first round, the competition narrows to three teams that present once again to a larger panel of judges in competition for a prize of $2,000 split between the top teams.
Registration closes on November 8th at 11:59 pm
