Later this month, graduate students from the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics will pitch their best ideas on the topic of “Cannabusiness in Washington, D.C.”
This pitch competition is the final round of UD’s Carol A. Ammon Case Competition, which gives graduate student teams the opportunity to create and present recommendations for the a different focal company each year.
This year’s teams of students have been working on their projects since the Case Competition Kick-Off on Feb. 24.
On March 17, three weeks later, they will present their business plans to a panel of judges consisting of Lerner MBA alumni and Corey Barnett, the subject of the case.
This event is open to the public, and all members of the UD community are invited to attend to see the Lerner College graduate students provide fresh ideas on the emerging field of cannabusiness.
The final three teams will present at 1:30 p.m. in Room 125 of Lerner Hall. Each team will have 25 minutes to present, followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers from the judges.
At the end of the presentations, the winner will be announced in the Lerner Hall Atrium, followed by an awards reception at 4 p.m.
