Inspired by USC Marshall's achievement of being the first top business school to achieve gender parity, Everyone’s Business Global Case Competition takes a unique approach to the traditional business school case competition, allowing student teams to provide strategic consulting on a pressing business issue related to equity in business.
Since 2001, USC Marshall has hosted the Global Consulting Challenge (GCC), bringing together the brightest minds globally to address and propose solutions to challenging business problems for companies like Google, Amazon, Disney and Toyota. In 2019, student leaders from USC Marshall Business Competition Program and Graduate Women in Business transformed the Global Consulting Challenge into the Everyone's Business Global Case Competition (EBGCC).
Now, in its fourth year, EBGCC will remain to be presented by the Marshall Business Competition Program and generously sponsored by UBS. We are excited to welcome back teams from leading global business schools to join us in person on March 3 and 4, 2022.
