The Baylor University Entrepreneurship Program and USASBE are jointly sponsoring a student case writing competition in conjunction with USASBE’s annual meetings. This is an innovative international event that supports and encourages students who wish to engage in case research and writing. Submitted cases are suitable if they advance the field of entrepreneurship, broadly defined, and contribute to an understanding of entrepreneurial phenomena. The cases must be original and unpublished, and their focus can include, but is not limited to, the following:
- New venture creation
- International entrepreneurship
- Small business management

The cases must have no more than 4 student authors per case, and the students may be either graduate or undergraduate. Accompanying the submitted case must be an instructor’s manual. The format for the instructor’s manual is shown on the web site listed below. With the submission of a case and instructor’s manual, at least one of the author(s) and a faculty supervisor must agree to attend the competition if the case is selected as a finalist. Although faculty supervisors will register for the conference, student authors will not be required to do so.
