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 2025 competition, the case will be emailed on Friday, January 24, 2025. 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 by noon (EST), on Monday, February 17, 2025.

The competition begins with an opening plenary session Thursday 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.
