BI International Business Case Competition

Mays Business School is recruiting a team of four undergraduate students for the BI International Case Competition (BIICC). BIICC is an annual undergraduate competition and was held for the first time in February 2016. BIICC offers a unique program including social activities and events, both for the international participants and for the BI students.

Through an intense and fun week, 12 international teams solve and present two real-life business cases delivered by our strategic partners. The first case is launched ahead of the teams’ arrival in Oslo and is presented to the judges on one of the first days of the competition. All teams can watch each other present and hence the first case is a great learning experience. After the launch of the second case, the teams have 30 hours to work on their solutions. The teams are split into preliminary streams and the top three teams meet in the final.
