The Case Academy crew arranges successful companies to visit JIBS and with it stimulate the interaction between companies and students. This integration is done through case challenges, providing some hands-on experience to you as a student. So, how will this look like? Let’s explain this in three simple steps;
Case Introduction: The company brings a case, a reality-based or made up problem from their organization. They present the problem for the students together with relevant knowledge about the company and its organization.
Solving: In teams of four students, you will be challenged to come up with solutions to the presented problem. Be aware that the clock is ticking and the case has to be solved in a specific amount of time, usually four hours. During this time, you will have the chance to ask questions and advice to the representing companies.
Presentation: When the time is up, it’s time to present your solution to the company. After the presentation, your case solution will be discussed with the company. From all participating groups, the selected winners receive a prize from the company.
The purpose of the case challenges is learning and networking, and everyone can participate! The case challenges are adapted for JIBS students, you just have to believe in your own ideas! When you participate, you are guaranteed to develop your creativity, teamwork ability, problem-solving skills and add valuable contacts to your network. Not to forget that you will have a blast and make new friends along the way!
