Coffee Challenge

Published: February 6, 2011 / Author: Mendoza College

Do you have a great idea for a social responsibility plan for a global coffee company? One that is good enough to catch the attention of company executives and to compete with other MBA prospective students for a $10,000 Notre Dame MBA fellowship plus hundreds in additional prizes?

The University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business is hosting a virtual case competition where individual participants can analyze a real-life business challenge offered by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and submit their own one-page proposal for judging by company executives. The Notre Dame MBA Mini Deep-Dive Challenge launches online here with registration opening Jan. 17 and a deadline for entries of Feb. 4.

The challenge invites participants to develop a recommendation that has a real impact on a sustainability issue, while at the same time, strengthens the company’s brand. In addition to the grand prize of the $10,000 fellowship if the winner successfully matriculates into the Notre Dame MBA program, participants also may win Keurig Platinum Coffee Brewers, McDonald’s and adidas gift cards, and Notre Dame T-shirts. The first 200 contestants to register for the challenge and submit an entry receive a prize package valued at $30. Visit the Notre Dame MBA Mini Deep-Dive Challenge website for complete details.
