2022 Case Topic


Who is allowed to join this competition?

All undergraduate UCLA students are welcomed to join this case competition!

I don’t have any consulting experience or business background. Can I still compete in the case competition?

Of course! We encourage anyone interested in consulting to participate in this case competition. Regardless of whether you have prior consulting knowledge or not, this opportunity will be a great learning experience for you!

How can I find and get to know my teammates if I am matched with a team?

If you choose to sign up individually, 180DC will assign you with other members and provide 48 hours for you to meet and confirm your group. Within those 48 hours, you will also have the ability to request a group switch. Afterwards, we will finalize the teammates within each group!
