WHAT IS THE INVITATIONAL Competition?
For the past 16 years the invitational case competition has been a part of Copenhagen Business School. Every year CBS Case Competition brings together 12 teams from leading international universities, to compete in solving a real-life business challenge. The teams, which are represented from all around the world meet in Copenhagen to apply their knowledge and skills on a business case. They are tasked with assessing the issues organisations are facing, analysing available information, crafting solutions and defending their recommendations in front of a jury with experienced consultants and case-solvers.
THREE REASONS TO COMPETE
You will gain highly useful skills such as becoming good at team work, problem solving and applying theory to real life business cases.
Companies are constantly looking for people with problem solving skills to combat the challenges that they might face in their market, participating in case competitions will put you on their radar.
The main takeaway that we hear from previous participants is the amazing experiences. Take part in the events that we plan or the personal encounters with people from all over the world.
WHEN IS THE COMPETITION?
The competition takes place in week9 from February 25 to March 3, 2019. The whole week will include entertaining and challenging events at CBS and in the city of Copenhagen.
In the end of a full week of socialising, cracking cases and experiencing new cultures, the teams who have made the best solutions will represent their university in a grand final on a stage at one of the CBS campuses. The final will be open to the public and be the peak of the week, which will give the participating teams lifetime experiences!
WHAT IS THE SELECTION PROCESS?
The competition is a by-invitation-only format for undergraduate case teams. Every year, 12 talented teams get invited to participate.
To be eligible for participation, each team has to be supported by a faculty advisor from the respective university.
Our selection criteria are based on the following:
