NHH students won prestigious case competition

Four students from NHH won one of the world´s biggest business case competitions at Thammasat University in Thailand.

Four undergraduate students represented NHH on the brilliant Viking Consulting Team:

Didrik Andreas Hansen Westby, Johanne Weum, Aleksander Ragnvaldsen and Nicolai Christopher Steckmest Sivertsen.

– This is amazing. NHH's case team has won one of the most prestigious case competitions for business students. I am deeply impressed by the efforts of the four students on the Viking Consulting Team. NHH is extremely proud to have undergraduate students at this level, says Therese E. Sverdrup, Vice Rector for Innovation and Development at NHH.

NHH against the world

On Monday 17 September, NHH International Case Competition will be launched. Strong teams from Europe, the USA and China are set to compete alongside the NHH team.

Thammasat Undergraduate Business Challenge is an international business case competition bringing together undergraduate students from leading business schools around the world. The competition is annually hosted in Thailand by the undergraduate students of Thammasat University’s BBA international program. The case is based on real issues regarding a specified business.

Associate Professor Francisco Santos at the Department of Finance has been the coach of NHH's case team. He has travelled with student teams to Canada, the United States and now to Thailand.  

– He has been very important as a supervisor and coach, says Sverdrup.

This competition so is highly ranked that the winner is invited to the Champions Trophy in New Zealand. 

Since its inception in 2008, the Champions Trophy Case Competition attracts top performing undergraduate case competition universities from all over the world for a week-long event in Auckland, New Zealand.

Participants in January 2019.
