The 2018 International Business Ethics Case Competition will be held from April 18-20 at the Boston Marriott Hotel Copley Place in Boston, MA. The event will begin on the evening of the 18th. Full presentations will be given on the 19th; 10-minute and 90-second presentations on the 20th; winners will be announced at the awards program that evening.

The registration fee for IBECC is $450 (or $700 if a school sends both an undergraduate and graduate team). We have secured a discounted hotel rate of $259/night which includes free internet in the guest rooms. Register now on our Registration Page and visit our Hotel Information Page for more details. IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN IN TOUCH WITH US, PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER. WE HAVE REACHED OUR MAXIMUM OF 40 TEAMS, SO THE FIELD IS NOW FULL.

We will once again conduct the optional “World’s Most Intellectually Daunting Biathlon”–our academic/athletic competition. We’re still working out the details, but the “athletic” part will be a 4-mile walk or run “time trial” along the Charles River. Check back later for more information.


Teams are free to choose whichever topic you want. However, please be sure that your topic relates to a business ethics issue. Even though topics related to nonprofits, public policy or governments may have a financial dimension, this doesn’t make it a problem in business ethics. In order to be eligible to win prizes, your topic must relate to a business ethics issue. If you have any concerns or questions, contact us at info@ibecc.net.
