The Business Case Competition is an all-day competition hosted by the Adam Smith Economics Society, GU Consulting society, supported by the Adam Smith Business School. It is an opportunity for the school's brightest students to compete in teams of 4 and present a business case in front of a panel of judges. The teams are selected through an application process, which includes resume submission and a case study to solve. There will also be a public speaking workshop prior the competition day. The competition aims to increase employability skills through real-life experience of business presentations, networking opportunities and exposure with employers and opportunities for student engagement with alumni and firms.
The Gala intends to celebrate the work of the Business School in working with Students in ways that reflect the legacy of Adam Smith. Students from the schools affiliated societies will in be attendance, along with those who have benefited from the funding and support the school offers for extra-curricular activities that enhance and enliven the student experience. Student leaders and those who have achieved exceptional academic success will also be in attendance, ensuring the evening highlights the myriad of exceptional talent the school nurtures.
