Contact Susan Schellhase for more information on participating in the FUSION 14 BMC Student Case Competition.

Announcing the FUSION 13 BMC Student Case Competition Winners!

The itSMF USA Knowledge Management portfolio manages IP created by and/or offered to our membership.  The highlight each year of this portfolio is without question the BMC Student Case Competition.  We invite teams of 3 students each from master-level programs across the country.  Eight schools competed this year, each developing a solution to a case study provided three weeks prior to the competition, which they presented to a panel of 6 judges.

The eight schools competing this year included:

  • Indiana University
  • University of Arizona
  • Purdue University
  • Texas A&M University
  • University of Illinois Chicago
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • University of Southern Florida
  • Tulane University

We were very fortunate this year, as in years past, to have the support and sponsorship of BMC Software.  Through their contribution, itSMF USA is able to award cash prizes to the winners:  $5000 to first place, $3000 for second and $1000 for third.  We also award an Honorable Mention.



Congratulations to this year’s winners!
