The Yale School of Management will host the 12th annual Business School Alliance for Health Management (BAHM) competition on February 24, 2023, as part of the Yale Healthcare Services Innovation (YHSI) Case Competition.

YHSI is a student-organized event focused on bringing innovation to healthcare delivery. BAHM is an international consortium of 21 MBA programs dedicated to advancing thought leadership and education in the global health sector.

“We are excited to partner with BAHM and invite teams from around the world to propose care delivery solutions to a business challenge laid out by the competition sponsor,” said Hallie Whitman ’23, a joint-degree student at SOM and the School of Public Health, who is co-chairing the event with School of Public Health student Hargobind Khalsa ’23.

This year’s sponsor is RHA Health Services, an organization that provides support services to individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Student teams from member schools in the U.S., Canada, Costa Rica, India, Kenya, and Spain are invited to participate. As co-chairs, Whitman and Hargobind are responsible for leading all aspects of the content development, logistics, and marketing for the competition, supported by a team of student leaders.

“It’s an honor for Yale to host the BAHM Case Competition this year,” Whitman said. “We’re thrilled to bring students from around the world together at SOM to focus on bringing innovative solutions to real-world business challenges in care delivery.”

BAHM has held case competitions since 2011. The events offer students the opportunity to receive cash prizes, possible academic credit, and to meet students from other BAHM schools. Competitions are hosted each year by a different BAHM school or a group of schools.
