India Case Competitions

Put your business skills to the test

Are you interested in studying Business and want to test your skills against India’s top high school students?

Plus, winners get top prizes of up to AUD $3000.

How does it work?

The case competition is for teams of 3 to 5 year 11 and 12 students from the same school and comprises of three keys stages:

  1. Written proposal

    The first stage involves all registered teams submitting a written proposal to the Case Competition Statement. This should be in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, up to 10 slides maximum. The proposals will be evaluated, and a shortlist of the top teams will move to stage 2.

  2. Semi final presentations

    The second stage is the semi final, where the shortlisted teams are invited to compete by presenting their proposal online to a panel of expert judges from the Faculty of Business and Economics.

  3. Final presentations

    Teams who progress to the final stage of the competition will be offered competition mentoring from current Bachelor of Commerce students and will then be invited to attend our Grand Final event in Delhi to present their submissions to a panel of judges comprised of University of Melbourne academic staff in person.

    The University of Melbourne will cover travel and accommodation expenses for teams who progress to the Grand Final  and who are not located in Delhi.
