The Champions Trophy is a case competition held at the University of Auckland Business School featuring winners from international case competitions, as well as consistent performing universities in these competitions.
About the Champions Trophy case competition
The inaugural Champions Trophy was held in 2008. The event sees teams from 12 internationally-renowned universities being asked to read a business case, identify key issues, develop a strategy and prepare a presentation, all in the space of five hours. The teams then present their plan to a panel of industry experts.
The next Champions Trophy competition will be held at the University of Auckland Business School, from 25 January to 1 February 2015.
You can find more information about participating teams, competition format, rules and results at the Champions Trophy website.

People's Choice award
The People's Choice award is voted on by participants and advisers who are not in the final round. It is an opportunity for the audience to vote for the team that they felt gave the best presentation on the day.
The People's Choice award for 2014 went to Singapore Management University.
International case competition results
International case competitions bring together top students from around the world to compete with other teams as they analyse a challenging business case study and develop a business recommendation.
The real-world case studies are designed to highlight the strategic challenges and managerial dilemmas faced by global business leaders working in a fast-paced environment. Students also get the chance to network with their peers from around the world, build cross-cultural relationships and experience international cities.
