Biotech Case Team Scouting for Members

The Wake Forest team is looking for individuals who are interested in the biotechnology industry and want to be challenged by some of the top minds in the country. The team will consist of five members and an alternate. The only restriction is that there must be one MBA student on the team. The hope is to construct a team from varying disciplines such as MBA, Law, or PhD, that will leverage their knowledge to create a winning presentation.

Wake Forest’s Team for the Biotechnology Case Competition will take submissions until Oct. 15.

  • Resume
  • One-page summary statement – no more than 500 words to the following question: What one issue do you think will have the most impact on the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in the next five years and why?

What is the Biotechnology Conference and Case Competition?

The 2nd annual Wake Forest MBA Biotechnology Conference and Case Competition will be held Feb. 18-19 on the campus of Wake Forest University. The Wake Forest MBA Biotechnology Conference will bring together some of the brightest and most creative minds. Those involved with the competition will be represented by outstanding MBA and graduate programs in the region, as well as guests and judges from various companies related to the industry.

We are pleased to announce that Targacept is this year's case competition sponsor.
