Interview with Henrik Gregersen

1. When were you an active case student at BI and at which campus?

I became an active member of the case club during the autumn of 2020, the same week I started my bachelor's degree, and remained involved throughout the entirety of my studies at campus Nydalen.

2. Why did you decide to join BI’s case activities?

I joined BI Case to gain practical experience, apply classroom learning to real-world scenarios, embark on global travels, and meet awesome people.

3. What was the name of your case team and how did you find your teammates?

I have been part of several teams, with Silva and Aqua being the most recent ones. I had the opportunity to meet all my teammates through my active participation in the club's workshops. It is a welcoming and open environment.

4. Did you have a specific role on your team? 

I was the finance guy, often doing large spreadsheets and calculations. However, we also decided roles based on the tasks required by the case handed to us.

5. Which case competitions did you take part in? 

I have competed in CECC (Budapest), ROCA (Rotterdam/Carleton), NORDIC (Copenhagen/Lund) and BI’s own competitions. 

6. What is your best memory from your case journey at BI?

One memorable moment was when we were virtually declared the winners of the ISS case via Zoom, right amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This victory secured our qualification for the Central European Case Competition (CECC). 

7. What are your top three takeaways from case training and competitions?

Industry experience, presenting skills and problem solving. 

8. What skills did you learn from participating in case which were relevant to your development/career and how?

Problem identifying, solving, and presenting. Working with digital strategy there is a direct link between the experience I gained during case solving and what I do today. 

9. Do you have any advice to students who are curious about case?

I recommend familiarizing yourself with the case competition format by reading through past cases and watching previous presentations. This will give you an understanding of what participating in case competitions means. Numerous resources are available online, including presentations on YouTube and publicly accessible case tasks.
