The Berg Cup is a nationally known ethics case study competition held each spring term at the University of Pittsburgh. Undergraduate business students from across the country compete for a cash prize and the recognition of having their school's name engraved upon the prestigious Berg Cup trophy. The competition is hosted and administered by the University Of Pittsburgh Chapter Of Phi Beta Lambda, the College of Business Administration, and the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership.

With the success of last year's case study competition, we are ready and eager to make this year's event even better. The Seventh Annual Berg Cup Case Study Competition will be held March 20-21, 2015. The Berg Center will design the case document. The teams that best analyze and provide solutions for the study will receive either a first place prize of $4,000 or a second place prize of $2,000.  The team which best analyzes and provides solutions of the Business Simulation will receive a $500 prize.

Each team will consist of four undergraduate student members. There will be a variety of judges from different facets of the University and the community.

Hotel accommodations are provided for participating teams on the University of Pittsburgh campus. Meals are complimentary throughout the two-day event, along with entertainment and social activities for teams to network and build relationships.
