This past Spring, The Hartford held its 2nd annual Campus Case Competition at Bentley University, Boston University, Bryant University, and University of Connecticut. This year we’re expanding to even more schools. Between the four schools, approximately one hundred and forty students participated! One participant from the University of Connecticut, Michael Keller, said the following of his experience:
"The Hartford’s Campus Case Competition provided a superb opportunity to learn how to analyze and respond to the technology and infrastructure needs of a Fortune 500 company. The experience was fast-paced, offered the ability to collaborate with leaders at The Hartford, and presented a problem that mirrored a real life business issue. The Campus Case Competition helped broaden my view of the ever-expanding needs of today’s leading companies and has introduced me to the types of expectations in the workplace. I recommend this competition to all students as an excellent tool to strengthen their critical and creative thinking methods, teamwork skills, and presentation skills."
