Berkeley Research Group Case Competition

The Cohen Career Center is pleased to congratulate the winners of the Berkeley Research Group Case Competition. Teams of two to three undergraduates were presented with a business question and tasked with developing a recommendation for a hypothetical company. Team members indentified publicly available data and combined the data with proprietary company data provided by BRG to construct supporting analyses. Team members also needed to conduct secondary research on the selected industry in order to provide context for the recommendataion.
