Fostering creative solutions to complex problemsThe WBS Case Challenge 2017 is a great opportunity for global business school students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to collaborate and create innovative solutions to healthcare’s most pressing problems.
Last year's successful event at the beautiful University of Warwick campus in Coventry, saw 12 teams from top business schools competing, with University of Warwick, taking away the grand prize for the first time and succeeding Alliance Manchester Business School, who were the challenge winners of 2015.

This student-led event offers you the opportunity to network with MBAs and Masters students from across the globe and with plethora of people from the healthcare industry, including erudite academicians and researchers and potential employers. It is our great pleasure to inform that GE was able to offer a permanent role in their organisation to one of the participants, and that also the judging panel introduced to the industry some of the innovations presented during the Challenge.

This year, the WBS Case Challenge will be held at the sprawling campus of the University of Warwick in the new wing of the Warwick Business School building on the 5th and 6th May 2017. WBS understands the value of diverse perspectives, and the competition has been designed to encourage the convergence and intermingling of multidisciplinary teams that consist of not just MBA students but students from varied disciplines.

WBS is inviting teams of 6 postgraduate and masters students, atleast 3 of which must be MBA students, to compete for a grand prize of £4,500. There will also be a runner-up prize. Applications for teams are open; please download the form from the "Application Process" section.
