A unique opportunity for you to improve your case-solving skills

March 30 - April 3, 2020

What is ACC?

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

 

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.

Being a part of Aarhus Case Competition 2018, I realized the dedication from the students I came across. I was truly inspired by the way ACC connects the students with the corporate world. The students can learn so much from the world that is outside their books and the business world can learn so much from the young and creative minds.

“For the eighth consecutive year, we are committed to contributing to the inspirational environment of Aarhus Case Competition. Why? Because of you and our shared inspiration. The actual feeling of being inspired has a certain beauty, as it can arise in the company of dedicated people, the development of tasks, the feeling of making a difference for clients and colleagues, the joy of gaining new knowledge or just sharing a good laugh with new friends. No matter what the source of the inspiration is, we always experience the strong power of its presence – a power that, in our opinion, characterises Aarhus Case Competition. And experiencing the high level of that combined with ambition, collaboration, engagement, and inquisitive spirit; it is simply rewarding to be part of.”

 

Troels H. Petersen

Senior Vice President, Corporate M&A at Danfoss

"For me, Aarhus Case Competition is a unique opportunity to work with some of the most skilled young people and see what they can do and to show them who we are. When we look around, Danfoss has never been more relevant to the world. We are determined to stay relevant and to succeed we need the right people. I would expect some of the right people to be here at ACC."

“Lidl has been part of the Aarhus Case Competition before, but this is my first time attending the very interesting and prestigious event. Being a part of the jury is an honor, and meeting the bright and talented minds, who have made it to the Aarhus Case Competition finale, is something I am looking forward to. I am sure that the carefully selected finalists will provide case solutions of high quality and of great inspiration for me both personally and professionally.”

 

Per Baltzer

Vice-Dean, Research and Talent at Aarhus BSS

 

“There are several reasons why I want to be part of the ACC experience. First, it is plain exciting to see how well the students perform under extreme pressure. Secondly, it is always a great pleasure (in my position) to see just how good the students are academically. Thirdly, the students' case-solving skills show that the distance between academia and business is far shorter than it is often claimed."

In NNIT, we solve cases for our customers every day, and we are always trying to renew and improve the way we do it. I really look forward to seeing the innovative and creative solutions from the students - and get inspired personally and professionally by their ideas, perspectives, and energy."
