Who Are We ?
The Global Case Competition at Harvard brings together the best and the brightest minds around the world to solve a business case problem.
Since its inception in 2016, the competition has attracted 450+ teams (2000+ students) across the world to compete for a chance to win $10,000. Teams are given 3 weeks to prepare and submit a solution, and the top 10 teams will be invited to pitch their solutions to a panel of judges comprising of distinguished business executives and Harvard Business School professors in April 2021.
Participants will also have access to a series of online networking events and panels discussions featuring representatives from top Consulting firms, Private Equity firms, and Investment Banks, amongst others.

The case is related to the investment banking and private equity world. It focuses on a major finance event which students will have to study and analyse. Last year's edition encompassed an M&A scenario involving Amazon.
