Published: 2023-03-29

Last week, the second edition of the Nordic Case Challenge (NCC) finally took place. A business case competition for Bachelor’s students around the themes of sustainability and innovation. This year, we crossed the borders between Denmark and Sweden to show the interconnectedness of the Nordic Region.

The first days of the competition were held at Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, before heading to Lund University School of Economics and Management for the final stages of the competition. During the stay in Lund, the 11 student teams were given 15 hours to solve a business challenge for Kraftringen.

– I am deeply impressed by the ability and commitment of the students. With such skills on their way to the workplace, the future will be bright, says Olle Eliasson Director of Strategy, Sustainability and Innovation from Kraftringen and chair for the NCC in Lund.

The LUSEM team made it to the finals in their division and ultimately finished in second place. Congratulations to our students Adam Sundbom, Anders Åkerblom, Ludwig Lindau, Vilhelm Thorstensson and their coach Ulf Ramberg!

– The almost exponential development that students go through from solving their first case to solving several never ceases to amaze me. This team that we have coached in various ways within the framework of LUSEM Case Academy is no exception. The team’s success is a testament to the power of teamwork, it is evident that the team members have struggled with challenges together before, says Ulf Ramberg, the team’s coach.

Keep an eye on the school's LUSEM Case Academy to determine when the next exciting case competition will occur.
