Business Case Competition

Entrepreneurship and design thinking are part of the vision of our program: we encourage our students to acquire the necessary skill sets by participating in various Business Case Competitions held at University level. Students form their own teams to take part in competitions such as the HKUST One Million Dollar Entrepreneur Competition and the Fosun Technopreneur Competition. This gives students a great opportunity to sharpen their business acumen and gain valuable feedback while overcoming the challenges involved in building a practical business case

Participating in the Real Estate Case Competiton organized by MIT was one of the highlights of my MBA experience. I was pricileged to join a team of four from the U.S., U.K., Switzerland and Hong Kong. We had five days to prepare a detailed business proposal based on a realistic property development case that was set in London. When we were invited to the semi-finals in London, it felt like a real multi-million dollar business pitch instead of just a competition.
