The Leaders of Tomorrow National Business Case Competition is a challenge like no other competition in the world.
High school students analyze an MBA-level graduate school business case and present recommendations before panels of
senior corporate executives and business school faculty. In the process, they must master advanced math, critical
thinking, analytical, writing, research, and public speaking skills, and then present detailed financial projections
and implementation plans. Judges are instructed to evaluate participants not as high school students, but with
the same level of objectivity they would use when evaluating a graduate student or a potential professional consultant.
Through the Case Competition, these same students are exposed to NBMBAA mentors and
coaches who work with them intensively for months. They are guaranteed the help and resources they need to
thoroughly communicate the impact of their ideas. In the process, they develop the ability to draw connections
between what they are learning in school and what it takes to be a successful leader and the discipline to set goals and achieve them.
Most importantly, they develop the confidence that comes from believing you can accomplish anything.
