Fostering creative solutions to complex problems

The WBS Case Challenge 2016 is a great opportunity for global business school students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to collaborate and create innovative solutions to healthcare’s most pressing problems.

Last year's successful event at the iconic Shard saw 8 teams from top business schools competing, with Manchester Business School taking away the grand prize and succeeding Said Business School, who were the challenge winners of 2014.

This student-led event offers you the opportunity to network with MBAs and Masters students from across the globe and with plethora of people from the healthcare industry, including erudite academicians and researchers and potential employers. It is our great pleasure that not only was GE pleased to take onboard some of the innovations presented at the event last year, but they also offered a permanent role in their organisation to one of the participants.

This year, the WBS Case Challenge will be held at the sprawling campus of the University of Warwick in the new wing of the Warwick Business School building on the 22nd and 23rd April 2016. WBS understands the value of diverse perspectives, and the competition has been designed to encourage the convergence and intermingling of multidisciplinary teams that consist of not just MBA students but students from varied disciplines.

WBS is inviting teams of 6 postgraduate and masters students, atleast 3 of which must be MBA students, to compete for a grand prize of £4500. There will also be a runner-up prize. Applications for teams are open; please download the form from the "Application Process" section.
