The Ankura-McIntire Case Competition offers the experience of either planning or participating in a consulting engagement.

Top teams will earn prize money and additional prizes will be raffled off. Additionally, you will get the opportunity to network with people who work at Ankura. Not only will the competition look great on your resume but it will give you great case interview practice. 

This year's prizes are:

  • 1st: $2000

  • 2nd: $1000

  • Runner-up for each room: $250

LogisticsTo compete, each team must consist of 5 members, 2 of which must be either Comm students, MSComm students, or students in the McIntire Consulting class. Students must submit a $100 deposit (all of which will be returned on the competition day) to ensure their attendance at the event - cash, check or venmo all work. 

  • Kick-Off

    • A week before the competition, all participants have an opportunity to meet Ankura representatives and hear more about the firm.

    • Ankura will ​introduce the case and answer any initial questions

  • Presentations

    • Presentation times will be announced 


If you want to participate but do not have a group of 5 you can still sign up by emailing Margaret (mds3ec@virginia.edu) and we will put groups together. Please also email with any questions you may have!
