Making the Case

“Using knowledge and methods learned in the classroom to solve a real business problem is where the rubber meets the road in the business world.”

Claudel Dickantone, two-time Conexus Case Competition participant and now Accelerated Development Program Associate, Roche Diagnostics

Interpersonal communication skills, problem-solving and teamwork are key components to succeeding in the faced-paced, ever-changing advanced manufacturing and logistics industry.

A case competition is held every year to encourage college students to practice real-life decision-making and problem-solving skills. For some students, the case competition has been a career-inspiring experience.

“My first introductions to Allison Transmission, where I interned prior to my senior year, and Roche Diagnostics, where I currently work post-graduation, both occurred at the Conexus Case competition, Claudel Dickantone said.”

The Case Competition includes two tracks – one track for students enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program and one track for students seeking an associate’s degree.
