LUSEM Case Competition

Writing, Presenting, Solving


What is LUSEM Case Competition?

LUSEM Case Competition (LCC) is an interactive case-competition for students, by students, and with students’ learning and training in focus. The management-decision cases are presented live and solved in by the audience and competing teams. LUSEM Case Competition uniquely covers the entire process of case-based teaching- and learning. The real-life cases are written by students under the supervision of case-faculty. The unique cases are on current topics, with a certain focus on the management of communication, brands and reputation issues. The solution of the cases call for a broad management perspective. 

During the competition, student teams present their own live-cases to the audience including business representatives, faculty, and fellow students. The management decision in the case is discussed by the audience leading up to a recommendation. During the audience’s case-solving, two competing student-teams are – simultaneously and separately – prepare their solutions. The competing teams present their solution and recommendation to the audience and a panel of judges. The case-evening reaches its final when the case-writing students present the case-company’s management real-life decision. The different solutions and recommendations are discussed by the audience. A panel of faculty, business representatives, and student judges selects the evening’s winning team. Writing, Presenting, Solving. Simple as that.
