BAHM pBAHMroudly announces that its 2017 Annual Case Competition will be held at the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley.

  • Attend and be featured at the 10th Annual Business of Healthcare Conference on March 17 organized by Haas Healthcare Association
  • Meet other graduate students from across the country
  • Win first-, second-, and third-place prizes of up to $10,000. Haas Conference Choice Award will also be announced on Saturday at the award ceremony

President-elect Trump & The Future of Healthcare Reform

We’ve heard Trump state and tweet many things while on the campaign trail. It’s been an emotional ride for America on so many of the issues and Obamacare has been at the forefront of this roller coaster.

For this competition, each team will research and prepare a case study on a for-profit or not-for-profit health system, integrated delivery network (IDN) or health insurer and how it plans to strategically respond to the potential to “repeal and replace” Obamacare and Medicare, as outlined on President-elect Trump’s transition website and other outside credible sources.

Through data analysis, interviews, and the team’s own reasoning, the case should focus on the how the organization will adapt to this potential sea change.


Preliminary Agenda

BAHM teams will receive free admission to the conference and attendance is optional but highly encouraged. Teams can plan to arrive on either March 16th or 17th in time for the case competition dinner scheduled for 7 pm in the Wells Fargo Room at the Haas School of Business.

There are three recommended hotels next to the UC Berkeley campus:

Hotel Shattuck Plaza


A mission-style building from 1910, Hotel Shattuck Plaza is a downtown Berkeley landmark. Reflecting California’s architectural heritage and re-designed with a contemporary aesthetic, this historic boutique hotel is the jewel of Downtown Berkeley. Around the corner from the BART to San Francisco, and two blocks from UC Berkeley, our hotel is surrounded by wonderful shops, theaters and dining.

2086 Allston Way
Berkeley, CA 94704
(510) 845-7300

Hotel Durant


This boutique hotel ideally located near UC Berkeley campus and just walking distance from shopping, dining, & more in downtown Berkeley.

2600 Durant Ave
Berkeley, CA 94704
(510) 845-8981

Bancroft Hotel


Set in a 1928 Craftsman-style building, this casual hotel is across the street from the UC of Berkeley campus and 1 mile from the nearest BART station.

2680 Bancroft Way
Berkeley, CA 94704

We recommend you take the BART to get to any of the three hotels since it goes directly from SFO and drops you a block away from Hotel Shattuck Plaza and several blocks from the other two hotels at a cost of $9.55

  • Uber/Lyft from SFO to downtown Berkeley is around $50 (will vary)
  • Uber/Lyft Share from SFO to downtown Berkeley is around $32 (will vary)
  • Hotel is within walking distance of the Haas School of Business. Budget 15-20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the business school as you will be walking slightly uphill almost the entire way.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

BART goes directly from SFO to Downtown Berkeley. Rate is $9.55 (calculated by distance traveled).

There are two trains that leave from SFO:

  • From SFO → Richmond train will go direct to Downtown Berkeley
