Business Case Battle 2024


James Consulting is excited to host the second edition of the Business Case Battle on 21 and 22 March 2024 at our beautiful campus in Oestrich-Winkel. The Business Case Battle is a two-day event where teams from leading universities compete, network and have fun in a dynamic and engaging environment.

During the two days, teams of six students compete against each other by solving different and complex cases, demonstrating their innovative ideas and strategic thinking. Their ideas will be presented and judged by a jury.

There are a few innovations at this year's event:
- The number of cases has been increased from three to four.
- After each presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask the jury for feedback!

Team Requirements:
- Each team must consist of 6 students from any bachelor's or master's degree program who are currently enrolled at the same university.
- Each team must include at least two female members!

- Participants have the opportunity to stay with EBS students free of charge (limited availability)
- Alternatively, participants can stay in a partner hotel in Wiesbaden. The accommodation costs of 77 Euro per night for each double room (33.5€ per person) have to be paid by the participants. The BCB team will organise a shuttle service.

- The dress code for the BCB is business.
- Food and drinks will be provided on campus.
