Medtronic Interdisciplinary Healthcare Case Competition (MEDIHCC)
Established by the MILI Student Association in 2009, this competition allows students to apply their skills to a real case challenge presented by a medical device industry leader, and brings together students from colleges across the university. Medtronic, which sponsors the annual event, provides the case as well as generous cash prizes. Teams work for 36 hours to develop recommendations that will help the company best formulate a strategy, then present it to industry judges and Medtronic representatives in two rounds.
Business School Alliance for Health Management (BAHM) Annual Competition

This is one of the biggest case competitions in the biotechnology and healthcare space. In recent years, this event has been sponsored by the biopharmaceutical company AbbVie. Last year’s competition focused on a global health crisis and the participating team’s recommendations will be used by global health leaders to spark ideas and shape future efforts. This is an excellent opportunity for students to bring their experience, skills, and MBA training to address a critical business question in the healthcare market.
