With this initiative, the Business Case Institute and its partners challenge college students and finalists to learn about the Business Case Methodology (BCBOK® Guide) and the Business Case Toolkit, that have been gradually recognized by business managers as key tools for businesses sustainability.
The competition comprises a learning program where problem solving techniques, communication strategies and several types of analysis and estimation techniques will be addressed.
