CEO Team Clears CBS Case Competition
A team from our college, formed by the members of C.E.O. DU took part in CBS Global Case Competition for the sole purpose of learning. Out of a total of 3600 teams across 84 countries, only 20 teams were shortlisted to the second round, which included this very team. They ended up being the only team from India, undergraduate and postgraduate combined, to qualify. However, when registering for the competition, their primary focus was not to win it but to learn how to research more efficiently.
The essence of their work on the case competition was analysis, breaking down the problem, not trying to focus on presenting a solution with a pre-thought-out structure, rather let the structure come to them. When asked about their thoughts on how one should approach a case, a member of the team advised, “Understand what they want from you and follow a clear line of thought. Divide the responsibilities and work coherently.
This comes after successive qualifications for prestigious international competitions like the HSBC Case Competition and Harvard Global Case Competition by teams from our college. Such students reflect the strides that SSCBS is taking at a global level and hence make a name for our own college as a regular for international case competitions alongside numerous prestigious colleges.
