The Global Business Center, along with the Jackson School’s Center for
Global Studies and UW’s Department of Global Health, would like to
announce the 2019 edition of the Global Health Business Case Competition
As in years past, the case will involve solving a critical global health
challenge. Graduate and undergraduate students of all disciplines, from
UW Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma, are invited to participate.

*_About the _**Global Health Business Case Competition:*
_*This competition builds on the traditional business school case
competition model by bringing together students from multiple
disciplines including business, engineering, area studies and health
sciences in a competitive environment. Instead of addressing a typical
management or supply chain issue, students will instead tackle a
critical global health challenge.
