Board & Case Committee

NIBC is organized by students on the NIBC Organizing Team under the guidance of the NIBC Board comprising professionals in investment banking, private equity and asset management. Board members meet regularly to provide input on the planning, discuss the case and help the team invite speakers through their personal networks. Most board members have been with NIBC since inception or served as directors on the organizing team while going through university.

The Case & Oversight Committees consist of industry professionals who have dedicated their time and experience in valuation, financial modeling and transaction structuring to create sophisticated cases based on real-life situations for NIBC. Committee members also work closely with members of the organizing team to execute all aspects of the event.

Prior to dissemination of the cases, the Case Committee solicits input from other board members and professionals involved in adjucating the Final Round.
