ILA Student Case Competition
October 01, 2021
The ILA International Student Case Competition provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to compete and showcase their knowledge about leadership through the analysis of a contemporary socio-political-economic problem on the global or national level. Teams compete in two divisions, undergraduate and graduate. Through a case executive summary, poster given at the conference, and a final presentation (finalists only), students demonstrate an understanding of their case's underlying leadership issues while developing strategic recommendations for addressing key issues.

Organized by ILA's Leadership Education Member Interest Group (LEMIG), the yearly case competition brings together teams of students to face-off in an event where they analyze and develop a specific set of strategic recommendations that address key issues in a real world case involving a contemporary leadership issue of their choice. The winning team from each division (graduate and undergraduate) receives a $1,000 cash prize and is honored at the closing plenary of the conference.
The top three teams in each division are recognized at the closing plenary of the ILA conference. The team in each division that takes top honors receives complimentary 1-year memberships in the ILA and a $1,000 cash prize to divide among team members. The Student Case Competition is organized by the Leadership Education Member Interest Group.
