BI Case gives students the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in practice by solving real business challenges for Norwegian and international companies. Through case activities, students acquire skills that make them better equipped to cope with academic life, recruitment situations and working life.
BI organises two national case competitions annually.
BI students from all campuses can participate and the winning teams get the opportunity to represent BI in international case competitions.
You’ll find more details regarding the national competitions in the list below.
BI Case Challenge gives BI students the opportunity to solve the same case as the international teams of BI International Case Competition (BIICC). The competition is held concurrently with BIICC and is open to bachelor and master students from all BI campuses.
The teams have 24 hours to solve the case and submit their solution. A jury will rank the solutions and the top three teams will meet the next day at campus Oslo for the BI Case Challenge Final. The teams present their solution to the jury. The winning team will receive a prize from the premium partner of BIICC. *If a team from Bergen, Stavanger or Trondheim is among the top three teams, BI will cover transportation costs.
BI National Case Competition (BINCC) assembles teams from all BI campuses to solve real-life business cases provided by our strategic corporate partners.
BINCC lasts for three days and is held in October/November every year. The four campuses take turns hosting the competition.
The teams receive a warm-up case one week prior to the competition. When the teams meet, they will have 15 minutes each to present their solution to the warm-up case, followed by a ten-minute Q&A session. This is an important learning arena for the participants and therefore all teams watch each other present. The jury, consisting of representatives from the case company and prominent representatives from business and public sector, decides on a winner who receives a prize.
Thursday morning the – until then – top secret main case company is revealed and they present the main case to the students. From the case launch the teams have 12 hours to come up with their solutions.
