Durham, N.C. -- Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business will host competitors from 11 other business schools and the Special Olympics of North Carolina as they face off in the 18th annual Duke MBA Games on Saturday, April 8. Related
Teams will compete in events including the briefcase toss, a “swimsuit” relay in which teams must swim laps dressed in a full business suit, a dizzy bat race, an ocean cruise race in which teams paddle an inflatable raft across a swimming pool and a five-kilometer run.

Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, Harvard Business School, Michigan’s Ross School of Business, New York University’s Stern School of Business, Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, The University of Western Ontario’s Richard Ivey School of Business, The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
