CONCEPT


It is finally time, on the 21th of November 2019 the UGent Business Game returns!

The UGent Business Game is a business competition for all students of Ghent University that will graduate this year or next year. We invite you to “de Aula” 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 the challenges are provided by delaware and Procter & Gamble. The top 10 teams move on to the finale and get to work on a business case from McKinsey&Company. They pitch their ideas and solutions to a jury to win first place. The most creative team will take home the creativity reward. Of course, all participants benefit from a fun and incredible learning experience.

We will give 140 selected students the chance to participate!

The third edition will be even bigger and better again due to a collaboration between the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, de Vlaamse Economische Kring (VEK) and de Vlaamse Technische Kring (VTK) together with some amazing companies.

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