Take part in global business case competitions

What are business case competitions?

Business case competitions are events where teams of students solve a problem based on or set by a real-life company, within a limited timeframe, and present their recommendations before a panel. Case solving is a key aspect of business education.

Why should I get involved?

Taking part will give you the real-life experience of developing and presenting innovative strategic recommendations. Case competitions are an ideal way to develop your presentation, group working, networking and employability skills.

How do I get involved?

If you’d like to become one of the students that the School trains and sends to compete in online, national and international competitions each year, you should gain the necessary experience of case solving by taking part in our annual case competition.

The videos below will give you an idea of what’s involved. Application details can be found on the Adam Smith Economics Society Instagram page or by using this Google Form
