We cordially invite outstanding business schools from our global partner universities to participate in the first annual global case competition in May 2021. Each business school can send a team of three to five undergraduate or graduate students to represent your business school in the case competition.

The competition will take place virtually on May 21, 2021. On May 14, 2021, each student team participating in the case competition will receive a case study to analyze and present on May 21.

Each team will submit a maximum of 3-page, single-spaced summary of their analysis and make a 20-minute presentation plus a 10-minute Q & A from the judges. The summary of the analysis is due on May 20, 2021. Each team can decide the personnel for their presentation, but it is expected that all team members will participate during the Q & A period.

The case study judges, representing the diverse partners of the world, will assess the quality of the students' analyses as well as their presentations and announce the winners of the global case competition.

The winners of the competition will receive the following prizes:

  • 1st place prize: $1,000
  • 2nd place prize: $500
  • 3rd place prize: $250

We hope that your institution will participate in the case competition. If you happen to have more than one student team interested in participating, please let us know. We will entertain all entries unless there are too many entries, in which case, we will ask each institution to hold an internal case competition and select their student representative team from their internal competition.

Registration for the competition is open March 1 until April 1, 2021.
