Case Competitions

Case competitions are one of the significant highlights in the university life of a business student. Each year our students actively participate in local and/or international case competitions, which require them to formulate a strategy to a given real-life business situation and present their ideas before a panel of judges comprising top business professionals.

At the case competitions, you will use everything in your arsenal from business knowledge to analytical and presentation skills. Attending these competitions will allow you to interact with and learn from business professionals, as well as participants from other institutions, expanding your network beyond the campus.

There are different channels for students to excel with their analytical, problem solving and presentation skills.

Academic Cup

The Academic Cup is an annual case analysis competition organised by the Undergraduate Office to encourage our business students to experience the analysis of a real business case through team work. Students with outstanding performance may have a chance to represent CUHK in local or international case competitions.
