What is a Case Competition?

Competing teams are provided with a hypothetical business problem to solve. It may be a company which needs help launching a product, a company which is about to go into liquidation, or a company which has international connections but hasn't reached its full global potential.

Team members are given four hours to devise a strategy, before presenting their solution to a panel of judges. The competition is generally held over the course of a day, and the best strategy wins the competition.
