What is ACC Advanced?

Aarhus Case Competition is one of the biggest case competitions in the Nordics gathering top business students.

 

In the Advanced track, nine selected teams will be solving three different real-life cases: two introductory cases and one extensive 30-hour main case, where the winning team will receive the title of Case Solving Champions and other amazing prizes.

My participation in ACC enabled me to experience a complex business problem first-hand, from which I had the possibility to experience some of the challenges in a real-life business problem which is not possible in the general courses at the university.

I expect to see that again in 2020.”
