How can you stand out from other's resumes? Consider learning about how to solve ethical problems at a workshop!  

The Diversity and Business Ethics Case Competition (DBECC) Case Preparation Workshop will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Arrow Electronics Headquarters in Centennial, CO. The goal of the workshop is to provide students with training on case presentation and analytics, while also allowing business students from across the state of Colorado to work together on business challenges. The workshops are intended to enhance students' skills and prepare them to compete in the Third Annual Diversity and Business Ethics Case Competition, which will be held in February 2018.  Agenda for the workshop is attached. 

The  DBECC is hosted by the Office of Diversity Affairs and the Center for Education on Social Responsibility at the Leeds School of Business. DBECC is an opportunity for students to gain real world experience while competing in a case challenge focused on diversity and ethics in a business setting.  See event Agenda 

Up to 12 students from each school can attend the case preparation workshop. We need a balance of freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Apply early for first consideration!
