Halliburton Case Competition
Mays Business School, along with Halliburton, hosts a case competition where teams of four undergraduate or master’s students compete to develop a solution to a problem relevant to an oilfield services company. At least three team members must be in Mays, with up to one member from a discipline outside Mays, providing many teams with a multidisciplinary experience. Students are given 48 hours to prepare their solutions. The cases are presented to Halliburton executives with prize money awarded to the first through third place teams. For more information contact Shannon Deer.
This year, the 6th annual Halliburton Energy Case Competition will be held June 28, 2016.

PRIZE MONEY – 1st place team – $6,500; 2nd place team – $4,000; 3rd place team – $2,000
The competition will be judged by Halliburton executives. Teams must include 4 members with at least three members being students in Mays (MS or BBA, no MBA or PhD). The fourth members can be from a college outside of Mays or a Mays student. Successful teams in the past included a petroleum engineering student, students from the geology department, Bush School energy policy program, etc. Having a diversified team might be valuable. Previous participants said the benefits to participating were the interaction with executives and the information learned in such a short period of time.
