Participating in Challenges
What types of Case Challenges are hosted on WeSolv?
WeSolv hosts unique Challenges that are customized by the Companies that host them. Past Challenges have included product marketing and competitor analysis, new product launch, mobile app go-to-market strategy, and company valuation and analysis projects for well-known enterprise and startup/growth stage companies.
How do WeSolv Case Challenges differ from other Case Competitions?
WeSolv differs from your normal case competition in several ways. First, participants can select from a broader range of Challenges pertaining to companies and areas of interest. You can create a team with fellow classmates, or team up with other MBAs nationwide. Most importantly, you can track your performance across multiple competitions and measure your progress across a wider range of skills.
Do I need a team to participate in a Challenge?
Most Case Challenges are designed to be completed with a team. However, some Case and Quickfire Challenges may provide opportunities to compete individually. Each Challenge Page specifies the required team size.
What do I do if I do not have a team but want to participate in a Challenge?
Apply to join a Case Challenge and then select “Looking for a team” on the Case Challenge page or your profile page to indicate to other WeSolvers that you are looking for teammates. You can sort WeSolvers by “Looking for a Team” to find other students looking for a team and send messages to build a team before the sign up deadline. You can also solicit other qualified teammates offline, but be sure that all team members sign up on the platform and your team completes all application requirements.
What is a typical Challenge timeline?
Each timeline depends on the type of Challenge. Typically, a Quickfire Challenge is 1 to 7 days long and a Case Challenge is 3 to 6 weeks long. All Challenges should be considered extracurricular activities and shouldn’t interfere with typical school work and other academic commitments.
What do I receive when the Challenge ends?
At the end of each Challenge you’ll have stronger skills and experience to add to your resume, access to company executives, interview opportunities, and the chance to win prize money and awards.
