Investment Banking Case Competition (Fall 2013)

Sixteenth Annual Investment Banking Case Competition
Hosted by Goldman Sachs and the Haas Undergraduate Program.


Sign-ups begin on-line on 9/13/2013 and end 9/19/ 2013 via CampusGroups website. Go to to https://haasug.campusgroups.com/calendar and click on October 3 (date of final presentations). You will need the following information for each team member: name, e-mail address, graduation date and major(s). One student should volunteer to sign-up your entire team during our open on-line sign-up. Please have your team decide who this "volunteer" is. While this can be any team member, we recommend that it be a Haas major on your team, since Haas majors are more familiar with using CampusGroups.

The Haas Undergraduate Program and Goldman Sachs are proud to present the Sixteenth Annual Investment Banking Case Competition.  Each year this event showcases one of Goldman Sachs' recent high profile transactions to give interested students an opportunity to demonstrate and further develop their knowledge and skill base. This competition is ideal for students considering a career in investment banking, corporate finance, commercial banking, merchant banking, venture capital, consulting, and entrepreneurship. Participating in the competition also affords students a wonderful opportunity to meet and to get to know members of the Goldman Sachs recruiting team. In addition, the final round participants will be eligible to be selected for the Spring 2014 Haas external case competition team(s).

Undergraduate students are encouraged to form teams of four, although a team may compete with a minimum of three individuals. To replicate the work environments that you will enter upon graduation, there must be at least one team member who is a Haas major and one team member who is not a Haas major. Simultaneous degree students majoring in business and another major will be considered a Haas major.

Cases will be available on September 20th (download the case here.pdf) and students will be notified on case distribution via the investmentbankingcasecomp@haas.berkeley.edu mailing list. All participants must subscribe themselves to this e-mail list by going here. If you need assistance with this mailing list, please contact the Haas Computing Services Helpdesk.

A teleconference call will be arranged so you may ask questions regarding the case. This date will be announced via e-mail.

The presentations will be due by September 27th by noon. No exceptions will be made for cases submitted after this time.

The review committee, comprised of Goldman Sachs professionals, will review the presentations and select three to four teams to participate in the final round.  The finalists will be announced and notified on Monday, September 30th and final presentations will be held on Thursday, October 3rd from 6-9:30PM, in the Wells Fargo Room at Haas. Each of the finalist groups will make a presentation followed by questions from a panel of judges, which will include company management, investment bankers, and faculty from the Haas School of Business.  After a short recess, the winner will be announced and prizes distributed, followed by the judges' critique of the presentations. A discussion about the actual solution, with time alloted for questions from the audience will follow.

Case Submission Process
1. Each team will present their conclusions through a written presentation (landscape format), similar to the discussion materials often used in investment banking, consulting and corporate board meetings (PowerPoint slides). Your presentation can be a maximum of 10 pages in length. You can have additional pages that include tables and exhibits (in addition to the 10 pages mentioned). The tables and exhibits will be a critical component of the final product as your conclusions will be based on this work.
2. Your PowerPoint presentation should be converted to a PDF document.
3. E-mail your PDF presentation file to casesubmission@lists.haas.berkeley.edu and include the team members' last names in the subject line of your message.
4. Your message size cannot exceed 5 MB

Finalists: Your photo, video, and slide deck may be used on the Haas Undergraduate Program websites and for training purposes.
