Purdue HR Case Competition & Conference


 Competition Date: November 3 - 4, 2021*
Conference Date: November 5, 2021

At the Krannert School of Management, we know that well-trained and dedicated Human Resource Professionals can maximize the effectiveness of an organization’s human capital in order to gain a sustainable advantage in an increasingly competitive world. With that idea in mind, we are pleased to announce the 2021 Purdue HR Case Competition & Conference.

This will be an opportunity for students to compete while sharing creative solutions with business leaders from the companies that do HR best. Additionally, the competition will feature both a graduate and undergraduate division (each team should contain 4 to 5 presenters), with cash prizes rewarded to 1st- and 2nd-place teams in each division, as well as the best speaker and the best Q&A responder for each division.

As always, thank you to our corporate sponsors for your continuous support of Purdue’s Krannert School of Management.

In order to better plan this year’s HR Case Competition and Conference we are surveying schools to gauge interest in a virtual vs in-person event. Please click here to take the survey.
