Krannert Case Competitions is a group of engaged stakeholders that collaborate to create novel learning opportunities outside of the classroom. We work together to host and promote the case competition experience to all Purdue students. Explore our website to learn more. We are currently in the process of transitioning the Leadership Communication Studio into an enhanced portfolio of student experiences.
In collaboration with stakeholders, our mission is to equip students with the tools for successful academic and professional development, through unique signature learning opportunities outside of the classroom.
Our goal is to help students become more confident when communicating to groups of 1 or 1000. This confidence will help students create opportunities for themselves and guide the group collectively towards holistic success.
In 2014, Marcus Glick and Mriga Agarwal shared a common vision of providing students with the tools necessary to prepare for a successful consulting career. By founding Boiler Business Competitions, these innovators ensured that future groups of students would have the opportunity to follow in their footsteps. Today, Marcus works for consulting firm Thomson Reuters while Mriga consults for Deloitte. We thank the alumnus and the numerous corporate partners who continue to support students in the case community. BBC’s previous president, Christine Rasquinha, has dedicated tremendous effort to moving BBC into a new chapter of growth, incorporating more students with more effective tools than ever before. Christine served as president of the Purdue University Consulting Club, a graduate consulting organization which now relies on her consulting expertise as a budding 3+2 Masters student. Dedication from both clubs ensured that collaboration continued. The following president Matt Xia focused on quality club growth, expanding by hosting panel events and offering mentoring opportunities during case competitions.
The following president Joshua Groh recently moved to rebrand Boiler Business Competitions as the LCS Case Community with the goal of consolidating the relationship between the LCS and BBC, eliminating efficiencies created by the maintenance of two brands and organizations, and focusing on the community aspect of case competitions.
LCS Case Community
The LCS Case Community, formerly Boiler Business Competitions (BBC), was a student-led wing of the Leadership Communication Studio which organized and prepared ambitious students to compete in business case competitions. Case competitions provide students with an opportunity to improve and utilize analysis and presentations skills. Students are required to analyze a business case in sometimes brief time frames ranging from hours to weeks, so mastering business frameworks for rapid use is crucial. Teams of three to four students then present their solutions to a group of judges representing industry-leading corporations, opening numerous doors to new opportunities for those involved. Students can explore careers in consulting while preparing themselves for successful careers.
