Win big in the International Business Case Competition

*Please note that the 2020 IIBD International Case Competition has now been postponed due to COVID-19. The competition will be next held in 2021.*

Hey business and law students, are you a skilled problem-solver? Take on the world by tackling real-life business problems as part of the 2020 IIBD International Case Competition!

Now in its 12th year, the competition features the top students from universities around the globe. The 2020 theme is ‘Educating the World’.

The Faculty of Business and Law will enter one team so this is an opportunity for you to make your mark!

How it works

The team will comprise four current business and law students, who will be mentored by an academic. The timeline for the competition is:

The winning team scores US$1500 and a trophy, while the best presenter will win US$200 and a trophy.

Who’s eligible

Why you should enter

In 2018, Deakin’s team qualified for the finals for the first time, so read more about how they prepared and what the experience was like.

Impressively, commerce/law student Charles Francis won the best presenter award, which he described as ‘a huge boost of motivation for me to continue to pursue my professional ambitions in finance and to also continue to develop my presentation skills. Being able to speak and engage an audience is one of those traits that I have continually tried to craft, and winning this award is reassurance that I am on the right path.’

Team member Simon O’Loughlin found the competition to be a ‘phenomenal experience’. He developed extensive knowledge and skills in a pressured, time-simulated environment: ‘We completed a strong presentation in front of a large crowd. The competition is a great way to improve your analytical skills and is a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend the competition to current Deakin students.’
