Carol A. Ammon Case Competition

The Carol A. Ammon Case Competition gives graduate student teams the opportunity to create and present recommendations for the competition's focal company. The teams present their recommendations in two judged rounds. The preliminary round is judged by alumni and friends of the UD MBA program. Judges for the final round include leaders of several regional firms and/or executives from the focal organization.

The competition enhances students' analytical and presentation skills, expands students’ business vocabulary and exposes them to a vital audience of regional corporate leaders.

The Carol A. Ammon Case Competition is made possible by the generous support of Endo Pharmaceuticals and named for the company's founder, Carol A. Ammon. 

Prior Case Competitions have focused on the following organizations: 

  • ENDO Pharmaceuticals
  • Rent the Runway
  • Dogfish Head Brewery
  • B Lab
  • Cancer Care Connection

The 2016 Carol A. Ammon Case Competition
