Objective of the Business Plan
The objective of the business plan is to develop business strategies pertinent to a case sponsor in an identified target market. Details of the nature of strategy and specific functional areas that need to be covered in the plan will be defined in the individual case studies.
We have 3 cases on offer in this competition, each of which is based on one of our sponsors. These cases profile the industrial, strategic, operational, people and financial aspects of the company and look to give teams a comprehensive understanding of the organization. Teams are required to choose the cases in order of preference during the registration process. To help you make your choice we have presented a summary of each case study. Participants will be able to select the case along with the registration.
Registrants will be notified via email of the case assigned to them within 24hrs of registration.
