2018 Diversity Case Competition & Corporate Dinner Photo gallery
This year's Diversity Case Competition's case was created by our sponsor Oliver Wyman. The case asked students to create a pricing strategy that would help create an equitable and inclusive colony on Mars, while also staying profitable. The judges of the competition included representatives from Cardinal Health, EY, KeyBank, and Oliver Wyman. Thank you to all of our sponsors for helping us put on an amazing competition, and congratulations to our winners!

Each fall, the Black Business Undergraduate Society invites a variety of companies to campus for an interactive networking session where students are exposed to company cultures and opportunities. The goal of the Diversity Conference (DivCo) Career Fair is to provide the minority community with an intimate setting where they can showcase their skills and abilities while discovering their career path.

In an effort to deliver real-world experience to our members, BBUS hosts a Diversity Case Competition. This annual competition immerses students into strategic learning that will enhance business acumen and enable action- based learning. In addition to receiving coaching on public speaking and strategic planning, teams present their findings to corporate diversity recruiters, faculty, and select audience members.
In an effort to thank our corporate sponsors for their dedication to BBUS and provide our members with more opportunity to network, BBUS hosts an annual formal dinner in Ann Arbor. At the Corporate Dinner, our top sponsors have the chance to connect with our members in an intimate dining setting. Prior to this event, BBUS organizes a professionally-guided etiquette dinner to adequately prepare our members for dining in a formal setting.
Throughout the semester, BBUS hosts several events with our sponsors. Presentations range from personal branding to developing technical skills, in order to give our members an advantage in professional settings. There is also an opportunity for a company to host social events to engage and network with our members on a more personal level, and provide insight into the company culture. Corporate presentations are a great way to educate minority talent on the various opportunities at a particular firm.
