A couple of our M.Sc. students have contacted Boston Consulting Group and gotten their cooperation to arrange a case analysis contest. This is just the kind of student initiative I am very happy to sponsor, so I will a) be a judge, and b) market it here.
So – if you are a M.Sc. student at the Norwegian School of Management – you are herewith invited to participate in a case analysis contest. There are a couple of provisos: You have to form a team of 3-4 students, and at least two of those have to be strategy students (i.e., do the strategy major). The contest will take place at BI on April 14th from 8am to 8pm, and will involve analysis, presentations, feedback and – for the winners – some rather attractive prizes from both hosts.
Be a consultant for a day and test your skills with a real business case – with feedback from both faculty and bona fide strategy consultants!
The application deadline is April 1st. The number of places is limited, so ”first come, first served“ – and please send the application to firstname.lastname@example.org. (And do mention that you saw it here – we are trying to track how information travels about this.)
