SFU Business will host North America’s largest information technology (IT) business case competition — the CaseIT International Undergraduate Business Competition — Feb. 4-7.

The event takes place at SFU’s Vancouver campus at Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings St., and at the university’s Segal Graduate School of Business, 500 Granville St.

This year’s competition theme is Green IT, with a focus on how technologies can better serve the environment.

Conceived and organized entirely by SFU Business students, the five-year old competition now attracts students and their coaches from universities around the world. This year’s participants include Singapore Management University, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Cape Town and Università Bocconi in Italy.

IT professionals from top-tier IT companies such as Microsoft Canada and Tata Consultancy Services will serve as judges. The event also includes a speaker session featuring executives from businesses such as PMC Sierra Inc., IBM Canada Ltd. and VANOC 2010.

Spectators are welcome to join in the camaraderie, networking and special events.  For more information visit http://www.caseit.org/
