Johnson & Johnson University Case Competition
Each year Johnson & Johnson (J&J) sponsors the annual University Case Competition on ten campuses across the country. The competition is open to undergraduate teams that fulfill the requirements specified by J&J case organizers. The winning team from each university travels to J&J headquarters for an all day networking event and a chance to compete head to head with teams from the 10 participating universities. The competition is a semester long event that brings together top business students to make decisions that build and support a holistic business strategy. The case materials are created and distributed by employees of the sponsoring organization.
How it Works
Each spring term, usually in January, a new J&J case is rolled out on campus to participating teams across the country. On-campus competitions must be scheduled no more than 4 weeks after the kick-off event.
Each team has approximately four weeks to complete the case and prepare a presentation. In February teams compete on-campus before judges and representatives from J&J. Teams are judged based on specific criteria outlined in the case as well as the team’s ability to answer questions and support their overall business strategy. The winning team receives a monetary prize and goes on to compete in the finals held at Johnson & Johnson headquarters in New Brunswick NJ.
