Who are we
Who are we
Our vision is to connect ambitious students at Aarhus BSS to the industry by combining theory and practice, while contributing to building the case solving mindset at Aarhus University through partner workshops and international case competitions
Our mission is to prepare, support and send skilled teams to international case competitions, while facilitating great learning opportunities and experiences for our members
Our members represent Aarhus University in several international case competitions. They get to practice their problem-solving skills on real-life business cases and compete against teams from all over the world.
ICT represents Aarhus University at several different international case competitions each year. The competitions are based on real-life business cases where students get to provide their input on current issues facing a well-known company or organization. All teams are presented to the same problem, and it is up to the team to come up with the best solution.
A competition can last anywhere between 8 to 36 hours depending on the case. When the teams have handed in their solution, they will get a chance to present it to a jury. This presentation will be followed by a Q&A where the jury can receive more information on the parts of the solution, they find particularly interesting. Afterwards, there will be a Q&A where the jury can ask about details of the solution, they find interesting. Case competitions are a great opportunity for students to improve problem-solving and communication skills while meeting ambitious students from all over the world, since there also is time to engage and socialize with other teams during the competition.
Aarhus BSS International Case Teams is driven entirely by voluntary students through our board, who is responsible for the operation of ICT.
Board members are usually recruited once a year as needed. All members can express interest in joining the board and will usually do so after having participated in 2 semesters of workshops and case-solving. Currently, the board consists of the following 13 students allocated across 7 areas:
Laust Lyhne Christensen
Frederik Sevelsted Pedersen
Nicoline Højlund Lauritsen
Katarina Smed Kruuse
Kasper Østergaard Hansen
The organisation is supported by senior advisors and an advisory board that works closely with the board. Our senior advisors are former ICT members with special case-solving skills, who support students during workshops and at case competitions. Furthermore, they organize workshops for member. New senior advisors are recruited at least once a year as needed. Currently, our senior advisors are:
