About us

 
Our Mission

The purpose of Aarhus Case Competition and Aspire Case Camp is to offer students an inspiring experience and an opportunity to develop their case-solving skills. The concept bridges the business and the academic world in order to prepare students for a career in business. Additionally, by establishing a case-solving culture among the students in Aarhus, we seek to raise the overall educational level at Aarhus University.

Our Vision

We want Aarhus Case Competition to become the most challenging and rewarding case competition - anticipated every year by students and the business community throughout the Nordics. Furthermore, we wish to promote a case competition culture, which will be mutually beneficial to businesses as to the educational society in Aarhus, Denmark, and the rest of the Nordic countries.

ACC's History

 

The idea of Aarhus Case Competition started in 2011. Jesper Agerholm and Anders Thomsen, the founders of ACC, established ACC to show students the “magnificence of case competitions.” Jesper and Anders wanted to provide a case competition with open doors for any student, regardless of educational profile and background, wishing to challenge themselves. The students would gain valuable tools and improve their skill-set in problem-solving through workshops and several cases. The competencies gained at a case competition are basic tools for analyzing and communicating in a professional environment. What the students experience during a case competition is no different from what they can expect when entering the real world outside the university. Regardless of what sector you choose to pursue a career within, a common denominator is that you are usually asked to solve a problem and then you have to communicate your solution as well. Essentially, this is what a case competition is dealing with.

 

The first edition of Aarhus Case Competition took place in 2012. Since then, the competition has been an annual event at Aarhus University, School of Business and Social Sciences. Participating in ACC provides students with basic skills on how to approach a problem, whether that problem is within communication or finance. By connecting students and businesses, ACC creates a bridge between theory and practice by bringing real-life cases to the students.
