Competitions and Challenges
SEED aims to provide opportunities for RSBC students to participate in experiential activities both on and off campus. Students who participate in competitions and challenges experience broader networking opportunities and build business acumen and skills, which are desired by employers.
Upcoming Competitions and Challenges

Previous Competitions and Challenges
- GEICO Case Competition: Open to all undergraduate students at Rutgers–Camden.

Jammers around the world presented their ideas to both the local jam and uploaded their video to the global website.

I would like to thank the Nicole Thanasas, my Geico mentor for exposing me to so much valuable information. Thank you also to Professor Mandell and the rest of the faculty and Geico staff involved. I am honored to be named the winner and it was a privilege to take part in this opportunity.
