How does it work?
Teams of 3-4 members will develop solutions to a case related to a real project ETG is working on. You may sign up as a team or as an individual (in which case we will match you with team members).
The Case Briefing will be held on Thursday, April 19th in Lerner 501 at 6PM. ETG president Eric Hansen (Phd. MIT) will hold a short introductory presentation about the field of development consultancy and ETG’s work. There will then be a break including food and beverages followed by a briefing to guide your work.
Presentation of Solutions will take place on Sunday, April 22nd in Math 312 beginning at 1PM. An independent jury including Mr. Hansen will select the winning team who will receive a $300 prize to be divided among team members and a lunch with Mr. Hansen.
Registration is now open, and spots are very limited. Look out for updates to this page throughout the week!
