The CMIS Case Competition is an educational program offering Texas A&M students an opportunity to sharpen their analytical, presentation and teamwork skills. The competition also serves as an excellent forum for board members to interact with students in an academic setting. Students compete for scholarship funds and prizes furnished by the CMIS Advisory Board and the INFO Department.

During the fall semester, the competition is for undergraduate MIS students. During the spring semester, competitions for both undergraduate and master’s level students are held.

Undergraduate Student Eligibility

Students enrolled in either ISTM 320 and ISTM 410 during the spring and fall semesters are required to participate in the case competition as part of the course requirements. Students compete in three person teams. Team membership is coordinated with the faculty member teaching the ISTM 320 or ISTM 410 course.

Graduate Student Eligibility

The graduate level competition, offered in spring 2018, is open to graduate students enrolled in the Master of Science in Management Information Systems program (MS-MIS) or the Professional Program MIS Track (PPA-MIS) only. This competition is limited to twelve teams. Students self-select into three person teams and register to compete.

International students in the MS-MIS program must complete the oral communication workshop entitled “Keystones for Successful Group Presentations” offered in fall 2017 to be admitted into the competition.  Domestic students are eligible to participate without the workshop.
