From January 6 to 11 2013, the University of Kaiserslautern will join 35 schools from around the world in Montreal, Canada at the John Molson MBA International Case Competition. The competition, the oldest and largest of its kind in the world, is organized by MBA students from Concordia University's John Molson School of Business.

This year's event will have the greatest number of international competitors in the competition's history. In addition to the seven American and twelve Canadian universities participating, will be seventeen International schools from fourteen countries and five continents. Australia, Egypt and South Africa will be represented for the first time.

The University of Kaiserslautern, participating for the 7th time in a row, will again be sending their four best case cracking students who will, over six days, tackle seven business case studies, including one “live” case study. The live case will see a surprise company present a problem they are currently facing to the teams, who will then present their solutions. The teams will compete to take home the Concordia Cup and up to $10,000 in prize money.

About the Competition

The competition is organized annually by students who are appointed in February of every year. Five more students assist the organizers. This year's organizers have brought the business and academic worlds closer by recruiting 350 volunteers from Montreal's universities and over 250 judges from the Montreal business community.
