The Nottingham University Business School is pleased to invite you to take part in the 2015 UNNC Case Competition. This is the second year we have organised this event. This event will take place during the 13th -17th of November.

What is the UNNC case competition?

The UNNC Case Competition is designed for students who are interested in applying their theoretical knowledge to a business case in a tangible way. Participants are given a business case that simulates real life management challenges faced by a business organisation or company. This then allows students to identify, analyse and propose strategies to solve a specific business issue. Participants form a team of 4 individuals using teamwork, creativity, structure and critical thinking to provide solutions to the presented challenges. The best groups will be selected to present their solutions in front of a jury to qualify for the finals. Three groups will be selected to compete in the final round of the competition, and the winner will be decided by a jury which includes business school professors and external practitioners.

Benefits and prizes

This competition will be a good opportunity for you to acquire essential career skills including problem solving, critical thinking, leadership, teamwork, working under time pressure, and communicating with the public.
