International Case Competitions

Compete in an overseas case competition and test your business skills against the world’s best.

The Faculty of Business and Economics attends some of the best International Case Competitions in the world. We have sent students to dozens of exciting destinations for almost two decades, and next year it could be you!

Due to the uncertainty imposed by COVID-19, we are not sure if physical participation in International Case Competitions will be possible in 2021. We are currently considering all options for online competitions in early 2021. More information will be provided prior to applications opening
