Interested in competing in the Technology and Digital Innovation Competition?

  • Check 2019 DCC Rules to ensure that you qualify.
  • Check with your MBA program’s administration to see if an internal case competition is being run to select a team to represent the school.
  • If your school is not coordinating a selection process, interested parties are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible.

This year we are accepting only ONE team per school until September 20th, 2019. After which, you may register a second team if spots are available. 

Please note that registration does not guarantee a spot in the competition as space is limited. Schools will be notified of their acceptance to participate and will be sent a link to the appropriate registration and payment sites at that time. All remaining teams will be placed on a wait list, and will be contacted in the event that participating schools are unable to attend. The contact email provided below will be the method of communication  for all information. Please ensure it is entered correctly and is checked regularly, including spam folders.

  • Early Bird Registration will run through September 20th, paying$750 per team of 4 students.
