Each year Copenhagen Business School organizes case competition with participants from many different business school. Beat the Elite Competition allows students from Nordic region (non-business participant) to take part in it. Beat the elite is 24 hour case competition, with a 4 member team. Each year, many different teams take part in it and check their business competencies checking for the ideas.
In 2011, I got to know about this event while eating my lunch at DTU cafeteria. I have been involved in preparing cases for some time in European Best Engineering competition. Solving a case, involving real business world challenge within 24 hours made this competition very attractive to me. Spending just 24 hours would not do any harm to my other engagements.
Through Facebook, I have found my team mates. I participated in 1 workshop to understand more about the cases and when the day arrived (02.03.2011), we all were ready to go.
The case was based on textile giant H&M which was looking for sustainable and
high-impact strategic initiatives that will allow them to grow while keeping their business as simple as possible
