A Review of the International Business Case Competition 2016
The International Business Case Competition was one of the highlights of the fall semester 2016. As always, SolBridge welcomed teams from all over the world; however, this time around, we saw a greater European and African presence with the participation of students from Austria, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, as well as Morocco, South Africa, and Uganda.
Each team had only 2 days to analyze the case and come up with insightful, creative, and smart solutions. Their presentations were rigorously judged by a panel of judges, and results were give out on Thursday, October 27, 2016. First prize winners became: Corien Frederique Bijl (Netherlands), Marie-Lotte Oostdam (Netherlands), Katrien Andries (Belgium), and Charissa Angganita Esther Leiwakabessy (Netherlands). Second prize went to: Thijs De Smedt (Belgium), Laurens Raveel (Belgium), Vincent Van Reeth (Belgium), and Maxim Van der Schueren (Belgium). Third prize was for: Madiyar Khossediyas (Kazakhstan), Viktoriya Pak (Uzbekistan), So-Yeong Kang (South Korea), and Billy Priyanto (Indonesia).
During the six-day event, students also toured an LG factory in Pyeongtaek, an hour north of Daejeon, and visited historical landmarks in Seoul such as Gyeongbok Palace and a traditional market in Insa-dong.
We would like to extend our thanks and congratulations to all the participants and look forward to seeing your schools and countries represented again in the future. Well done, everyone!
