What is OPEN?

CBS Case Competition OPEN is an incredible learning journey in which ANY student can participate. It is an event that will push your boundaries whilst maintaining a strong focus on personal development.

It is a chance to explore your potential by competing against teams of 4 students from universities across Europe, with the first evaluation based upon power-point solutions to a real-life company case that are uploaded remotely. After all the teams are assessed, a select few are chosen to take part in semi-finals on the Friday of week 9 with the potential final occurring later in the day!

Why Sign Up?

Why not? Case-solving is one of the most sought after skills that employers are looking for, and what better way to improve yours than by solving a real-life case and receiving extensive professional feedback from consultants at our partner QVARTZ, regardless of whether you make it to the semi-finals or not.

We won’t just send you in there without any help. To prepare you for this you will gain access to comprehensive training resources put together in collaboration with our partners, including a case-solving toolbox and individual case workshops.

And you know what? There’s even the small matter of a (large) cash prize for the winners!

Who Can Participate?

OPEN is literally what it says on the cover – pretty much anyone can apply. Both Danish & International students are encouraged to apply from any programme at undergraduate or graduate level. Our only requirements are that you must enter in a team of 4 from a European university.

Don’t worry if you can’t get a team together initially – we have a Facebook Group dedicated to putting teams together!

When Is It?

The competition takes place in week 9 of 2018. We are going to announce information regarding submit, exact date, etc. very soon!

Stay tuned here and on the OPEN Facebook!
