On the third day of our case competition, the activities started early this morning with the drawings for the order of presentations and division groups. There are 18 schools represented and they are divided into 4 divisions. On Wednesday at 1:40 HK time or 10:40pm CA time we will be presenting our case. We are competing in our division against:
- Lund University (Sweden)
- University of Virginia
- Korea University
- Helsinki School of Economics (Finland)
Our team has done a magnificent job of getting to know other students. They really have great networking skills. After the schools were drawn, the team immediately went to shake hands and wish good luck to their competitors.
So, for now they are sequestered in their room with lots of junk food, and their collective minds deciphering the case. As an advisor I won’t be able to look at the case until presentations start tomorrow. So I can’t even give you an inkling of what they have been tasked to do.
