CONCEPT


It is finally time, on the 17th of November 2020 the UGent Business Game returns!

The UGent Business Game is a business competition for all students starting from the third bachelor, with a strong interest for strategic thinking and problem-solving. We invite you to our first virtual UGent Business Game to assemble a team of 4 students and challenge yourselves during multiple business cases from top-notch companies. Improve your out-of-the-box thinking skills, enhance your teamwork performance and learn from the best.

The competition consists of three rounds. During the first and second round on November 17th, the challenges are provided by Deloitte and delaware. The top 10 teams move on to the grand finale on November 19th and get to work on a business case from Boston Consulting Group. They pitch their ideas and solutions to a jury to win first place. The best performers in the Deloitte and delaware cases will also be awarded! Of course, all participants benefit from a fun and incredible learning experience.

Are you the next winner of the UGent Business Game? Don’t miss out and register now!

REGISTER


Fill in the form below if you would like to participate. Every team needs to consist out of 4 students. You can register as a group of 2 students and we will try to combine you with another group of 2. If this fails, your registration won't be approved. We will screen all submitted teams and choose a final amount of teams to participate, depending on how many cases our partners can correct in a short period.

You are free to upload your resume. This will only be used for the selection process and not for commercial purposes.

Registrations are open from the 29th of October (12:00 p.m.) until the 12th of November (11:59 p.m.). All registered teams will hear from us the 14th of November.

Since we are delivering goodiebags to the participating students, please also provide us with one address based in Ghent or its close surroundings. The goodiebags of every team member will be delivered to this address. If you do not have any accommodation in this area, you can fill in another address. However, we cannot promise that we will be able to deliver the goodiebags to that address due to a limited offer.
