The Case Programme

The Case Programme takes students around the globe on business case competitions.

The Case Programme

The case programme gives students the opportunity to tackle real life business problems while working in teams with other students. The Programme allows students to challenge their way of thinking, learn about their working style, form friendships and networks with like-minded students and travel the world representing the University of Auckland.

Importantly, the Programme also gives students a competitive edge when seeking graduate employment. Many of our squad alumni are now in top consulting firms, multi-national corporations and investment banks worldwide.
