The 2015 Leadership Crisis Challenge places teams of students into roles as members of an emergency response team for Aquastar International, a beverage conglomerate that is experiencing and may have contributed to a localized ecological disaster at one of their bottling plants. The LCC simulates a real-life business environment, where student teams must use all available information to create solutions with budgetary, brand image, environmental, and social implications while being held accountable by both Aquastar’s Board of Directors and the public at large.
