WHAT IS INVITATIONAL?
For the past 20 years, the Invitational case competition has been a part of CBS Case Competition, generating lifetime experiences for participants, audiences, juries, and partners – a truly unique tradition that will continue in 2024. 12 teams will be selected and invited from the top business schools in the world to compete in the competition. The teams will be challenged in assessing the real-life issues which organizations are facing today, analyzing available information, crafting solutions, and defending their recommendations in front of a jury of high-level business leaders. They will be doing this during a week in Copenhagen, alongside social and professional events, all in all to create lifetime experiences.

You will gain highly useful skills such as becoming good at teamwork, 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.
Based on what we hear from previous participants, the amazing experiences are what Invitational is all about. Take part in the social, academic, and professional events that we plan during week 9, and the encounters with ambitious business students from all over the world.
