2023 MBA Buyout Case Competition - Call for Judges



Wharton's Private Equity & Venture Capital Student Club is hosting its 22nd Annual MBA Buyout Case  Competition in New York City on Friday, March 24, 2023 and they are currently seeking alumni to join us as judges on the competition day. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Staci Dawidowski at  stacid@wharton.upenn.edu.

For your convenience we've included additional information below.

This competition, which will return to an in-person format following a virtual event last year, brings together teams from top MBA programs to simulate a private equity professional’s work in deal evaluation, network with judges in the private equity industry, and interact with other students from top MBA programs across the world. This is also a valuable opportunity for private equity firms to gain exposure to a fantastic pipeline of potential candidates. There will also be opportunities for networking throughout the day.
