Congratulations and Scholarships for Two Happy Case Competition Winners

Two winners of KLU case competition holding certificates

It was Kühne Logistics University’s sixth case competition, but the first one that focused on management. Last Saturday, 14 participants from Germany, Russia and Mexico worked on a case study all day. At the end of the event, they presented their proposed solutions to the jury consisting of Prof. Björn Michaelis from KLU and Eric Brueggemann from Boston Consulting Group.

Three hours, random teams, one case study in English … the participants who divided into random teams of two tackled a case from the management field. They had to answer four questions and formally present their answers. “The Case Competition was a real challenge,” said winner Sebastian Buchholz. “It was a fantastic opportunity to get to know other participants from all over the world and, of course, to win at the end.” Vasily Kalikin, the second winner, added: “Immersing in such a complicated case was a truly thrilling experience for me. I had to work out a solution with my partner and present it. Hamburg is a beautiful city and has a lot in common with St. Petersburg – both are full of life.”

This year, the students traveled from Russia and Mexico to join their German counterparts in participating in the competition. All of them are ambitious and enjoy challenges like this. They viewed the competition as an experience. Because of the high interest there will be another competition next year.
