GOODMAN CONSULTING COMPETITION (G.C.C.)

What is Goodman Consulting Competition (GCC)?

The Goodman Consulting Competition (GCC) is a one-week, integrated consulting competition held for senior students of the Goodman School of Business to help them in developing practical business and management skills. It's a chance to apply your academic training in a real-world setting by developing a solution to an actual current business challenge! 

  

This competition allows students the opportunity to work on a case developed specifically for GCC to provide innovative solutions to their problems. Delegates will be put into 3-person teams of skilled individuals and will be given a week to come up with a presentation that outlines their solution on the client’s issue.  

 

Delegates will be required to work as a team to analyze, solve, and present their business proposal in front of the client, along with a panel of judges.  

  

Teams will also be given an opportunity to network with the younger students to illustrate their thought process and provide some mentoring to first- and second-year students who want to get involved with Goodman Consulting Competition in the future. This is a great opportunity for upper year students to provide insight and guidance to the next generation of Goodman leaders.
