Recruit from BI

BI Case Teams

BI collaborates with business partners in connection with national and international case activities.

Are you a business representative searching for top talent and innovative solutions? Or an ambitious bachelor student looking for a great learning opportunity and a chance to expand your network and increase your employability? If your answer is yes, then look no further! 

BI Case Teams brings students and businesses together creating excellent case solvers and creative and insightful solutions to real business challenges. Through case activities, our students acquire skills that make them better equipped to cope with their studies, recruitment situations and working life. Our business partners get innovative ideas and fresh perspectives on their business challenges from top global talent.

A unique opportunity for bachelor students

BI Case Teams offers a fantastic learning opportunity for motivated and courageous bachelor students. BI Case Teams enrols 16-24 students each study year. Students from all campuses apply to the same programme and follow the same training sessions, both onsite and online. During the sessions the students acquire useful skills and learn how to solve a business case professionally. The workshops are delivered by our business partners, case alumni and faculty. 

Case students become better at converting theory into practice by solving real business challenges for Norwegian and international companies. They also learn how to work in teams, to use knowledge across disciplines to solve problems, to work under time constraints, to present in front of an audience, and they get in-depth knowledge of Norwegian and international business through interaction with our business partners.

Upon successful completion of the training programme, the students are eligible to compete in our national competition and to represent BI in international case competitions. This gives them a unique chance to build a network with bachelor students from top business schools.

All case activities at BI are carried out in English and that gives students an excellent chance to improve their language skills and to use English in a business setting.

If you are an ambitious bachelor student looking for an intensive and engaging learning journey that gives you an extra advantage in study life, recruitment situations and in work life, you should apply to become a member of BI Case Teams.

If you’re still not sure if this is the right thing for you, then take a look at our case alumni interviews and find out how case solving has advanced their careers.  

What is case solving?

Case solving gives students practical experience and a broad set of capabilities within business, ranging from strategy to finance and marketing, which can help students pick their future career. Students also learn case solving frameworks which help them during their studies.

In teams of four, students solve business cases within a given time frame and present their solution to a panel of judges. After the presentation, the team has a Q&A session with the judges.

BI works closely with selected business partners in connection with national and international case activities. For our competitions, cases are written by BI in close collaboration with representatives from the case company. The cases highlight a real and relevant challenge or opportunity faced by the company. At the launch of the case, a key representative from the company presents the case to the students before they start solving it. Representatives from the case company are also jury members during the case competition and they participate in the social events.

As a business partner you can contribute to BI Case Teams and our case competitions in many ways:

  • Deliver a case for the national or international competition
  • Be a jury member during a competition 
  • Host a workshop for our students
  • Give a lecture to our students
  • Sponsor a case team’s participation in an international case competition
