Graduate Leadership Crisis Challenge

We want YOU to compete in the 2016 Graduate Leadership Crisis Challenge! Registration is open for a limited time and you won't want to miss this opportunity! Imagine you and all your friends, at the Big House, competing for $3,000- what's not to like?
The Challenge will take place on March 24-25 at the Big House (Jack Roth Stadium Club-Michigan Stadium)! 
The Crisis Challenge is a premier, action-based learning experience, pioneered by Ross, that will immerse you in a simulated business and media crisis. Participants play the part of senior executives tasked with responding to the crisis as it unfolds, and present their strategy to a board of directors, journalists, and the public. You will have an opportunity to work with a diverse team, building your communication, analytical, and strategic thinking skills, all while maintaining composure and poise in a tense situation.
The first stage takes place at the Ross School of Business beginning at 5PM on March 24th, and lasts until approximately 11PM. The second and third stages take place at Michigan Stadium on March 25th from 9-5PM. There, you'll have an opportunity to take part in the challenge and explore the Stadium like never before. 
Who can compete: The Crisis Challenge is open to graduate students from all disciplines; so invite all your friends!
Prizes: 1st place $3,000, 2nd place $2,000 prize, 3rd place $1,000
