The 2014 Baylor-USASBE Student Case Writing Competition is now accepting submissions. This is an innovative international event that supports and encourages undergraduate and graduate students from across the globe who wish to engage in case research and case writing.

Submitted cases must be original and must not have been previously published nor submitted for review to a conference, book, or journal. Submitted cases are suitable if they advance the field of entrepreneurship and contribute to our understanding of entrepreneurial phenomena.

The next competition will be held in January 2014 at the USASBE Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. The deadline for submissions is September 13, 2013. Finalists will make their presentations to the judges on Thursday, January 9, and the winners will receive their awards Friday morning, January 10, 2014.
