International Case Competition
The AUC School of Business International Case Competition brings together teams of students from all over the world, to compete in solving a challenging business case. This is the first competition of its kind organized in Egypt and focusing on business challenges facing high-growth entrepreneurial ventures. The competition provides students with a unique learning experience to understand the business and entrepreneurship landscape in Egypt, Africa, and the Middle East, including complex issues around consumer behavior, economic trends, regulatory and policy reforms, technology adoption and the supporting ecosystem. This case-solving competition aims to blend a cross-cultural understanding of working with Egyptian students and entrepreneurs with a grasp of the Egyptian culture in a well-designed process.
This one-phase competition will provide in-depth analysis of a fascinating fast-growing startup with global market aspirations. The competition will include training and experience sharing on case solving, after which student teams will work on the case delivered by experienced strategy consultants.
This is a chance for you to develop practical oriented experience, get insight into how to conduct conventional business strategies, build new skillset, all while competing and representing your university, as well as country across the MENA region. Participants will receive training within various business areas and hone their soft skills, prior to working in teams of four on a 12 hours’ case and present their solutions in front of a judging panel of professionals.
For your university to participate, you need to put together a team of four undergraduate students from any major (the competition is interdisciplinary), with the passion and determination for development, along with a faculty mentor who will also act as the team’s chaperone.
The competition starts on April 19 and end on April 24. It will be held at the AUC New Cairo Campus, with optional accommodations available on campus at the student housing
There is no sign-up fee for participating.
