Each team will be asked to join the International Case-Competition Google Classroom (Google Classroom code will be notified to each registrant upon the registration completion). The case solutions should also be submitted via Google Classroom. The case for the Preliminary Round will be announced on the platform on Wednesday, June 16th, 2021 at 9.00 A.M (GMT +7).
  • The teams must hand in their final case solution proposition according to the announced timeline. Late submissions are not accepted and will be disqualified. The case solution propositions are final, no modifications to presentations are allowed after the hand-in deadline.
  • Case solution propositions must be made in full English and uploaded as a .pdf file.
  • The proposition must not exceed 5 pages of A4 paper (excluded the cove) summarizing the solution and key points in text format (Times New Roman font, 12pt, line spacing 1.5).
  • Teams are allowed to use all resources available to them in order to research and develop their case solution.
  • Teams advancing in the competition are required to facilitate their own technical setup for the finals, including, but not limited to; high bandwidth and stable internet connection and high-quality sound and video equipment. Lack of proper equipment may result in disqualification.
  • All finalists must be available to participate online in the International Case Competition Final Round on July 16th, 2021.

 

Evaluation

  • Evaluation criteria will be described in the case.
  • All solutions submitted will be reviewed by a Panel of Judges, who will select the top 10 teams to qualify for the semi-final round, top 5 teams for the Final round, and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners, respectively.

 

Final Round

  • In the final round, each team will present their solution over an online Zoom video conference call (facilitated by our Organizing Committee) to a panel of judges. The presentation will be streamed on all relevant social media platforms.
  • Finalists must facilitate their own technical setup for the final and be available to participate in the equipment and connection testing sessions.
  • Each presentation will consist of a 15-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. The presenting team will be notified when five minutes and one minute remains, both during their presentation and during the Q&A.
  • The presentation should be held under the same circumstances present at a physical presentation. Thus, during the presentation and Q&A no outside help is allowed, including, but not limited to; guidance from others or any other interaction with non-team entities.

 

Confirmation of enrollment

  • If your team proceeds to the semifinals, International RM Case-Solving Competition will need confirmation of enrolment from all team members.

 

Eligibility and team formation

  • International Case-Solving Competition is open to undergraduate students from across the globe.
  • Teams must consist of 3 eligible students. There are no requirements for gender balance on teams.
  • Teams cannot be formed across universities. In the light of the current pandemic and new regulations, we no longer find it responsible for teams to be present at the same physical location during finals. Therefore, to ensure fairness of competition, each team member is required to sit individually, but in a group video call with the rest of the team.

*Please keep in mind that the rules are preliminary and may be subject to change. We therefore advise you to look at the rules once again on June 16th at case launch.
