The Vanderbilt University Advanced Degree Consulting Club is gathering a team to the attend  Mid-Atlantic Case Competition held by the GSCB (UVA) and FCC (NIH) on Friday, April 17th, 2015 at the NIH campus, MD.

We are looking for applications to form the team of Vanderbilt with 3-5 people. The detail information of this event is listed below.
Please send an email to huapeng.yu@vanderbilt.edu by the end of this week, Sun, Mar 22nd, 11:59pm. After the VUADCC receives all applications, they will notify you with further updates. 

The Graduate Student Consulting & Beyond club at UVA (GSCB) and the Fellow Consulting Club at NIH (FCC) are delighted to host the Mid-Atlantic Case Competition this spring.
