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 600+ teams (2500+ 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 2022.

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.

Join now for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive a world-class learning experience through a hands-on business case, and to build a unique network with students from all over the world and with executives from the world’s leading institutions!

The Global Case Competition at Harvard 2022 is jointly organized by the IFSA Network, and the Harvard GSAS Business Club.

 We bring together students with finance and business backgrounds  from across the world to compete at Harvard on a finance case.

 "Traveling to Harvard and presenting our solution to a distinct jury was a unique and unforgettable experience." - Cash Cows 

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.


The case is created by selected professionals to ensure the quality of the competition.


Just like in a real world situation, teams will have to create a pitch book. The teams in the top ten receive an invitation to present their work in front of a first class jury at Harvard University. However, all participants are invited to join the on-campus weekend at Harvard University.

Meet the future leaders and get a chance to network with world leading institutions and business executives during our on-campus weekend.


Build a unique network during our social events, galas, workshops, and spend an unforgettable time with the global elite. Showcase your intelligence to the world, develop new skills and compete with the very best.
