Fantastic results of Corvinus students in major international competition| 2020.02.18.

One gold and one bronze medal for Corvinus in major international business strategy case competition

Corvinus’s team achieved first place in the premier case and third place in the main case rounds of the BI International Case Competition organized by the triple-crowned BI Norwegian Business School between 8-14 February 2020.

The premier case was related to Construction City Cluster, a non-profit organization in Norway seeking to establish a circular economy business model with local stakeholders. The main case was about company RENAS that collects and recycles electronics and electrical equipment and WorkIT, a small company employing people who have problems adapting to normal work life. The pilot project of these two companies aimed to establish a scalable business model supporting both environmental and social sustainability.

Corvinus students Helga Molnár, Attila Légrádi, Levente Neszt, and Zoltán Rádai received positive feedback from judges in all rounds. “You understood the sensitivity of context and the importance of involving stakeholders in a sustainable business model in all aspects. Also, implementation plans of a workable solution were excellent”, the judging panel comprising representatives from domestic corporations, NGO’s and multinational advisory firms agreed.

The faculty member in charge of the team’s preparation for and coaching throughout the competition was Miklos Kozma, associate professor from the Business Economics Institute. Students were recruited from the Cases on International Business Strategy course organized by the Institute. Colleagues involved in the course were Prof. Erzsébet Czakó, Ass. Prof. Miklos Kozma (course leader), Ass. Prof. Zsolt Matyusz, Ass. Prof. Miklos Stocker, and PhD student Bence Pistrui, as well as a range of former students of the course in a mentoring role.
