National Diversity Case Competition

#NDCC24 will be held January 12–13, 2024

The Kelley School of Business National Diversity Case Competition (NDCC) is a premier event that brings together top-level, diverse talent from colleges and universities across the country. This event includes networking, a case competition, and workshops. Corporate partners have the opportunity to recruit students by judging the case competition, presenting workshops, and engaging in networking.

The NDCC is held annually over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend and in 2024 the Kelley School will host the 13th annual competition January 12–13.

Undergraduate students from institutions across the United States will be able to connect with the event’s corporate partners throughout the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.
