iDream.tv The MPS Global Diversity Business Case Competition (GDBCC) brings together students from MPS high schools exposing students to business case study, and providing a real-world business situation that requires students to formulate solutions to business issues based on an evaluation of information and utilization of acquired business acumen.
Students will work with 100 Strong Who Care mentors from the business community over a ten-week preparation and competition period. The student teams will present their solutions to a panel of corporate executives to earn post-secondary scholarships and awards.
