spring 2018: Teach for America (sponsored by ey Parthenon)
Are you interested in a career in consulting, non-profits, or want to develop your problem solving skills? Then register for campusCATALYST's annual non-profit case competition! Sign up individually and be placed on a team, or sign up in teams of 3-5 classmates. You will work with your team for a week to solve a consulting problem and then present your solution to a panel of judges. No prior consulting or non-profit experience is necessary and any UChicago undergraduate student can sign up.
campusCATALYST is thrilled to present its annual non-profit case competition sponsored by EY Parthenon. The case competition will be a great opportunity that combines hands-on consulting experience with the opportunity to make a positive impact to a non-profit organization. Outstanding performers will be invited to a private networking event with EY Parthenon consultants, in addition to landing a spot in campusCATALYST’s Fall 2018 cycle. Students will compete in teams of 3-5 to collaboratively develop a solution for a case based on a real-world challenge faced by Teach for America (TFA) and present their solution to a panel including Teach for America representatives, EY Parthenon consultants, nonprofit leaders and Booth students.
