IESE – Roland Berger International MBA Case Competition

General Information

The International MBA Case Competition began at IESE Business School in 1995 and has become an anticipated annual event. The Competition, sponsored by IESE and Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, brings together bright minds from the world’s leading Business Schools.

Participants chosen to represent their schools will have a unique opportunity to work towards a business solution on a relevant and current case, an exercise which simulates the reality of a career in Consulting. Experienced consultants from Roland Berger will coach the teams during the competition and give valuable advice on developing analysis and preparing a convincing presentation. Finally, the participants will present their results in front of a jury of top-class business representatives.

But it is not all about competition. All work and no play is no life for a consultant. Participating teams will also have the opportunity to explore the fascinating city of Barcelona! They will get in touch with international MBA students from known business schools and Roland Berger employees from different offices.
