International Business Ethics and Sustainability Case Competition – Loyola Marymount University

The 2024 International Business Ethics and Sustainability Case Competition (IBESCC) will be a hybrid competition held online and on the Loyola Marymount University (LMU) campus during the week of April 8-12.

Teams of 3-5 students, graduate or undergraduate, compete in 3 competitions during the event: 

  • The 25 Minute Competition, in which teams will present their chosen business problem, an analysis of the ethical, sustainable, legal and financial aspects of a problem, and a viable solution on all fronts.
  • The 10 Minute Competition, in which teams will incorporate the suggestions from judges during the 25-minute presentation to give a 10-minute presentation expanding on the ethical aspect of the problem.
  • The 90 Second Competition, in which teams will give an elevator pitch explaining the importance of the sustainability component of the problem.

The online divisions will compete on April 8 and 9. IBESCC staff will work with each team to find a presentation time, accommodating schedules in different time zones. The in-person competition will convene April 10-12 in Los Angeles on the LMU campus. The winners for all divisions will be announced on the evening of Friday, April 12 at the Awards Ceremony, which will be live-streamed.

Registration for graduate and undergraduate teams is open until February 19, 2024.
