The HKUST International Case Competition (HKICC) is a premier business case competition in Asia, organized by the HKUST Business School since 2003. The competition brings together talented teams from global business schools to compete for the championship in Hong Kong.
Each team, comprised of four undergraduates, strategically tackles business cases developed by The Thompson Center for Business Case Studies. Each case provides an overview of a particular organization and outlines a series of pressing business issues that senior management must address. Additionally, relevant data and additional information, such as annual reports, financial data, and market research studies, are provided as references.
The competition aims to highlight real-world business challenges, foster teamwork, and promote cross-cultural exchange. It serves as a platform for idea exchange and experience sharing among students and faculty members. Additionally, it seeks to promote Hong Kong through both the case and the event itself.
