Business Case Competition

Segment Partner

The Business Case competition at MindSparks23 is a highly anticipated event that challenges students to solve real-world business problems and present innovative solutions. This competition provides a platform for participants to showcase their analytical skills, critical thinking abilities, and strategic decision-making capabilities.

The competition begins with an online case study, where participating teams are given a business scenario and a specific problem to solve. Teams are required to analyze the case, develop innovative solutions, and submit an abstract within a limited time frame. Based on the abstract submissions, a panel of judges will select the top teams to advance to the next stage of the competition.

Selected teams will be invited to present their solutions at the event day of MindSparks23. Each team will have the opportunity to deliver a compelling presentation, showcasing their problem-solving approach, analysis, and proposed solutions. The presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges who will assess various criteria such as the clarity and coherence of the solutions, the depth of analysis, the feasibility of implementation, and the effectiveness of the presentation delivery.

At the end of the competition, the judges will select the winner and runners-up based on their outstanding performance and innovative solutions. The Business Case competition offers students a chance to gain valuable experience in solving complex business challenges, working in teams, and presenting their ideas in a competitive environment.
