Board

Current board members, chairpersons, board alumni and case competitions

About us

The board currently consists of twelve students from the University of Cologne along with two chairpersons representing the case.study.course. All board members remain in their position for the time of their studies. This means that we are constantly looking for new board members who are recruited from successful course participants. Many of our board alumni joined renowned consulting firms and keep in touch with us through their participation in our sessions.

International Case Competitions

As part of the further development of the case.study.course, it is our goal to compete in international case challenges. In the last couple of years, we successfully took part in the prestigious Sofaer International Case Competition (SICC) in Tel Aviv, Israel and the Solvers' Cup in Budapest, Hungary.

The participation in these competitions is usually reserved for board members. In case you are interested to join the board, just contact the case.study.course team.

We are always looking for new motivated people.
