The Corvinus team of 4 BSc students won first place in the 2020 RSM Star Case Competition, organized by the triple-crowned, CEMS-member Erasmus University Rotterdam last week.
The event was held online due to the pandemic situation, between April 18 - 25. Corvinus triumphed in the 6-hour case provided by Royal Philips, related to the company's global innovation strategy.
After the Closing Ceremony, Attila Légrádi, a member of our team was asked to share his experience about the competition, especially considering its online nature: "Case solving is always case-solving, whether it's online or not, the team must compete on the edge and give the best solution they can."
