The Business Game is a one day event during which approximately 120 students compete to solve the respective cases given by the partners. Each case gathers around 40 students. Throughout the day, there will be opportunities for them to stand out and get noticed by the partners, either formally during the study cases’ sessions or more casually during the coffee breaks and the cocktail. Whichever the case chosen by the students, they all attend the presentations given by our partners in order to get insight about different career opportunities offered.
During the breaks, students have access to the booth of the Career Center from HEC Lausanne where they have the possibility to get their CV reviewed. There will also be opportunities for them to discuss and receive advice from professionals.
The cases are discovered by the students on D-Day. This way, we make sure that all our participants start with the same degree of preparation. As a matter of fact, their performance will only be rated according to their understanding of the case, the solution they will offer and the degree of team work they will achieve.
However we would like to make sure all our participants bring their laptops for the day of the event. Laptops will be needed in order to hand in the written part of the case as well as for preparing a visual support for the final pitch.
Please note that the dress code is business formal.
Last but not least, we would like to emphasize that the event is completely free thanks to the generous contribution of our partners and sponsors.
The 5th edition of the Business Game will take place at the University of Lausanne, Amphimax.
