What is the GLOBAL competition?

Global 2019 is CBS Case Competition’s response to an increasingly digitalized world. We believe that no matter where in the world you find yourself, you should have the opportunity to participate in one of the best undergraduate case competitions. Our sixteen years of experience with case solving have crystallised into a new format of on-line interaction, which you can experience in the spring of 2019.  

The competition will be held online and open for all undergraduate students globally. It is a chance for anyone, no matter what location in the world they find themselves, to compete with some of the top case teams out there. The competition will be held through our own platform with a livestream preliminary round for the best teams. The top 3 teams will be invited to Copenhagen to compete in the final.
