The competition is being sponsored by PepsiCo, a longtime NSHMBA supporter and corporate leader in advancing diversity and inclusion in the workforce. Teams will be given a hypothetical business case from which they will develop business solutions for a current operational, marketing or financial challenge. Each student team will then prepare and present its case before a panel of experienced business leaders from PepsiCo. Teams will be judged on their analysis of the case, the feasibility of their recommendations and the quality of their presentations.

"NSHMBA challenges students with real-world scenarios, and our business case competition is an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge and capabilities to PepsiCo" said Manny Gonzalez, CEO of NSHMBA. "NSHMBA is glad to host this business case competition at its Annual Conference & Career Expo, and we're very proud to have PepsiCo serve as sponsor for this competition."
