Every year since 2011 the Technology Club at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley has put on a Technology Case Competition. Our value proposition is simple: we get the best MBA minds from around the country to ask the right questions to solve a business problem in the technology industry. Positioned as a "hackathon for MBAs," we attract MBA students from the top programs who are passionate and interested in technology careers. This opportunity allows MBAs to solve real-world business challenges, gain hands-on experience in the technology industry, and network with leading technology companies. Previous sponsors include Intel, Dell, Booz Allen Hamilton, GAP, IBM, and VMWare
