Central European Case Competiton

Mays Business School is recruiting a team of four undergraduate students for the Central European Case Competition (CECC). The CECC is an invitational case competition bringing together high-performing students of top business schools from all over the world, including Central and Eastern Europe. The teams of four students solve two complex business strategy cases and present their solutions in front of a professional jury. The case studies cover business strategy problems of companies active in the Central European region. CECC welcomes every participant with a professional program colored with unique local experiences, where they can broaden their experience and meet with fellow case solvers.
