Competition Format & Rules
Cases for the Templeton Business Ethics Case Competition are written or acquired by the competition directors. The case for a particular annual competition is emailed to the two student team members and the faculty advisor at each participating institution. For the 2023 competition, the case will be emailed on January 18, 2023. The case is usually two to three pages long and involves a contemporary business issue that presents financial, legal, and ethical issues for decision makers. Approximately three weeks after receipt of the case, teams must prepare and submit both an executive summary and a PowerPoint slide deck to be used in their oral presentation. These materials are due on Friday, February 10, 2023.
The competition begins with an opening plenary session Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. This session provides an opportunity for visiting teams and faculty advisors to meet one another and the Stetson directors of the event. Additionally, bracket assignments will be announced at this event.
