Event Details

We are delighted to invite member schools to enter a team in the MBA Association of Ireland’s National Strategy Competition 2021. This year we are taking the event virtual, to ensure Covid restrictions do not hinder academic institutions from participating in the competition. We are excited to have top strategy expert Kaihan Krippendorff of outthinkers.com on board to lead this year’s event. 

The annual Competition presents an opportunity for students from MBA Programmes from all over Ireland to pit their wits, skills and learning against each other in open competition. Participating teams compete to conceive and construct robust corporate strategies for a specially selected case study.

Don’t miss out on:

… a uniquely exhilarating test for your students!
The competition is an unforgettable experience and challenge, set in a pressure-cooker environment – one which your students will look back on with fondness and pride.

… independent adjudication
Elements of the competition have been amended to ensure the highest standards of independence in our judging.

Note: Participating schools may enter more than one team. Teams will not be accompanied by an academic staff member. 

This year’s strategy competition takes place virtually from 10am on Saturday, 19 June 2021. Teams will spend 4 hours devising a solution, then present their strategies in the afternoon.

Application form should be submitted by 28 May, 2021.
