What is a case challenge?

In a case challenge (also often called a case competition) the teams participating strive to develop the best solution to a real-world issue presented by a business or organization most often within a 24-hour time-span. Each team presents their solution both in writing and as a short oral pitch to a jury (10 minutes). All teams receive pitch training to prepare them for the final presentation.

Practical information

The Global Health Case Challenge is open to all students. A team can have a maximum of five participants and a minimum of three participants.
