When were you an active case student at BI and at which campus?
I was an active case student at BI Oslo from 2017 to 2018.
Why did you decide to join BI’s case activities?
I decided to join the case competition as it presented an interesting opportunity to learn about new industries while meeting new people from all over the world.
What was the name of your case team and how did you find your teammates?
Our team name was Blue Consulting and the team consisted of good friends from my course.
Did you have a specific role on your team?
No, we had a great team structure where everyone rotated across the different roles so that each team member got exposure to leadership, modelling, strategy planning etc.
Which case competitions did you take part in?
- International Case Competition in New Zealand
- International Case Competition at NHH, Norway
- BI National Case Competition
What is your best memory from your case journey at BI?
It has to be the case competition in New Zealand. The entire program was very well structured in order for the teams to solve multiple cases while also attending several social events.
What are your top three takeaways from case training and competitions?
- It’s a great way to acquire skills that can be used in your professional career while learning about several industries.
- You get to meet interesting and smart people from all over the world while at the same time learning from them.
- BI’s case competition has a strong support team consisting of Svein, Marielle and previous case alumni’s which will provide great advice and support along the way.
What skills did you learn from participating in case which were relevant to your development/career and how?
I learned a lot from the case competitions, ranging from working in a team under pressure, to how to think about capital expenditure in support of revenue growth. My participation in case solving definitely helped me towards securing an analyst position at a Private Equity firm in London, as I acquired a lot of knowledge and realized that I wanted to pursue a career within finance.
Do you have any advice to students who are curious about case?
You will regret it if you don’t give it a try!
