International Case Competitions

Test your business skills against the world’s best in virtual International Case Competitions.

The Faculty of Business and Economics is proud to have competed in International Case Competitions (ICC) with leading universities around the globe for two decades.

The 2021 training program has been adapted to our new virtual environment. You will attend a series of online workshops designed to develop your consulting skills, and participate in weekend practice cases.

The program will be strongly supported by ICC alumni from leading consulting firms and investment banks. Senior FBE academics and alumni will deliver practical workshops, judge practice cases and mentor you through the process.

In 2022, participants will compete in virtual case competitions and become part of the ICC alumni network.

The journey began with an extensive training schedule that saw the cohort learn invaluable skills ranging from financial modelling to strategy development and slide deck creation. With a proud history spanning more than two decades, the ICC program boasts an alumni network of more than 200 past students working all around the globe, who were called upon, along with academics and industry representatives, to deliver rich and insightful training sessions.
