1st Runner-up, Peak Time Case Competition 2017
Together with Colin, Wilkins and Joyce, I participated in Peak Time 2017, an annual international business case competition held by the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, Latvia. After competing in the preliminary rounds, the 20 top teams from 18 different countries were invited to join the final events in Riga. Our first task was to maximise the share price of a phone manufacturing company in a business simulation game. Then, we were asked to solve a business case in 4 hours. This case competition is an excellent platform for business students to apply book knowledge to a real scenario. We were also able to polish our team collaboration skills and presentation techniques.
Peak Time is more than just a competition; it is also a golden chance for participants to know more about Latvia and other countries. In the Riga sightseeing tour and cultural evening gathering, we learned about Latvian history and other countries’ cultures by chatting with other finalists and tasting their traditional snacks.
