Case competitions

Interested in case competitions?

Case competitions give students the opportunity to challenge their academic competencies, improve their collaboration skills, and to achieve an understanding of the challenges companies are facing. 

What is a case competition?

  • Case competitions come in various forms but what they all have in common is the fact that students get the chance to solve real life business problems.
  • Some case competitions last only a couple of hours while others are spread across days. You need to participate in teams, and it is important that the team poses different skills and talents.
  • If your team's solution is among the best, you will often get to present it in front of judges, which can be older students, consultants, industry specialists, professors or the like.
  • In most case competitions the winning team will get a prize, which can be either cash, gifts or unique opportunities to work with a given company.
  • Most university based case competitions are large events with dinners, speakers and cultural inputs, which all are great opportunities of broadening your intellectual horizon and increasing your professional and social network.

Why participate in case competitions?

It is never too early to start practicing your business skills, and case competitions work as great opportunities to do so. Even if you are on your first semester, you can still contribute to the case solving process with creativity, slide-making skills, general business logic and being a good presenter.

What is special about international case competitions?

Participating in international case competitions often demands more administrative work in the form of scheduling practice before going abroad, putting together the right team members, handling travel expenses and ensuring support from your home university.

Aarhus BSS International Case Teams will help all team members with this process and make sure that you will have more time to advance your case solving skills and get the best possible outcome of participating in international case competitions.
