About CICC

Citi-HKUST International Case Competition (CICC) is a world-class business case competition in Asia region co-organized by Citi Hong Kong and HKUST. Over a dozen of teams from leading business schools from all over the world will compete for the championship in Hong Kong every year since 2003.

There will be four undergraduate students in each team. The competing teams will be presented with a business case developed for the event by The Thompson Center for Business Case Studies, HKUST Business School. The case provides background about an organization and outlines a set of pressing business issues that senior management needs to address. Supporting data and other associated information such as annual reports, financial data, and market research studies will also be provided as references.

To celebrate the 15th Anniversary, as a special edition, CICC consists of a short case competition and a long case competition this year. The competing teams will have 3 hours to prepare for the short case and 22 hours to prepare for the long case, using their skills and expertise in a wide range of business disciplines from accounting, economics, finance, marketing, operational management, strategy and technology to complete their analyses. Each team of students will present their findings and recommendations to a panel of judges who come from the business world.
