Energy Innovation Case Competition

We invite MBA students from the best business schools in the world to prove their innovation and intelligence in the energy industry for a well-known energy company. The sponsor company identifies an issue they need an innovative technology-based solution in order to solve. Teams will participate and prepare virtually on the case and present to industry expert judges that are leaders in the sector. The top 4 teams win $40K in prizes — the largest prize of any collegiate case competition. The final four teams will present their case findings/solution at the 2023 NAPE Summit.
