What is AAU Case Competition?
A Case Competition is a popular phenomenon among students and companies.
AAU Case Competition is a way for students to show their creativity and use their skills to solve problems for the case company. For the case company, a case competition is a way to brand itself to the students and thereby, use it as a recruitment tool.
30 hours before the finals at Musikkens Hus, Arla has given the students three seperate cases, and each group must choose one case to work with. The contestans are primarily from IT, engineering, business and communication, however, all students at Aalborg University are welcome to apply. The case competition starts with 12 teams. However, only the four best teams will take part in the finals. At the finals, we will see the four final teams present their case and answer questions from the professional jury. Hereafter, the jury will find and present the winner of AAU Case Competition 2018.
The Jury consists of:
– Inger Askehave, Vice Cancellor, Aalborg University,
– Mogens Ryholt, Dean, engineering, Aalborg University
– Brian Dohn-Bassøe, Vice President, Supply Chain Excellence, Arla
– and two more!
AAU Case Competition opens the doors for the third time, where you as a student or company get a unique insight into the university students and see their ability to solve a case within 30 hours!
