The Case Study Competition is highly interactive 2-day contest organized by alumni clubs in the respective countries. In a limited time, cross-functional teams from different companies show their best talent, creativity, teamwork and endurance while analyzing and solving a real business case.
“The main goal of the competition is to provide participants, who usually are junior and middle management, a perspective on what the business decision-making and business realities look like. It promotes also a different type of thinking when approaching business dilemmas. As the exercise is very intense and people work under stress, team work, exchange of ideas as well as the company culture does help participants to come up with the best solution they can. The Case Study Competition of course also gives participants and companies a sense of what business education is like and what kind of quality of education a school, like IEDC – Bled School of Management, which I’m a graduate of, can provide” stresses the President of the IEDC Alumni Club Macedonia, Ante Poposki (Country Head of Novartis).
