Last week, students from the School of Business and Economics won an ‘international case competition’, this time held in Singapore. This represents their third victory – after Bangkok and Copenhagen – in 14 months. In a case competition, student teams have to solve a real-life business problem and prepare a presentation on the solution while being locked in a hotel room for 24 or 36 hours. The team consisted of Tom Deupmann, Timo Kahlen, Maya Thielenhaus and Alexandre François, accompanied by coach Bas van Diepen. “They showed great teamwork, thorough argumentation and courage. The case – on sustainability – didn’t require a financial analysis but our students did one anyway, as they’re used to doing in Maastricht. And this analysis brought them lots of credit."
