Why Human Capital

Why Human Capital?

Human capital matters. No matter your role in an organization, you will encounter human capital issues and challenges ranging from talent acquisition to change management and from performance management to people analytics. As organizations need to solve increasingly complex human capital challenges, are you prepared to help solve them?

That’s where the National MBA Human Capital Case Competition comes in. The idea for the competition began with students and professors at the Owen Graduate School of Management who wanted a way to elevate and showcase the importance of human capital strategy in business schools. In year’s past the case competition is held annually in Nashville, Tennessee, where top MBA and master’s degree candidates form teams to go head-to-head in solving the most critical human capital issues organizations face today, while competing for $12,500 in cash prizes. This year (2021), the competition will be held virtually. The event is designed to test students’ ability to think critically, to develop sound business solutions, and to present to a panel of prestigious judges, who are experts in the field.

Understanding the enormous value of strategic human capital and human resources in the businesses of today and tomorrow HP Inc. is sponsoring the National MBA Human Capital Case Competition. HP has demonstrated a long-term commitment to helping students grow and develop their careers and this case competition is designed to help students become future business leaders.
