Polit Case Competition (PCC) RISE
March 17, 2022
PCC RISE is the first of our new case competitions in economics. It is specifically designed for novices in case-solving wishing to explore the world of case competitions from the comfort of their own home with a chance to solve real-life problems of leading Danish organizations. We, therefore, encourage all students on both the bachelor’s and master’s program with any level of case-solving experience to sign up for PCC RISE.
We are excited to announce Jeudan as the case partner for this years RISE competition. Jeudan is the biggest real estate company in Denmark, with more than 200 properties worth 29 billion DKK. RISE competition is a great opportunity to try out or develop your existing case-solving skills. We encourage all students with any level of case-solving experience to participate. Watch the video below for deeper insight into our exciting case partner Jeudan.
Students enrolled at a Danish University at the time of the competition are eligible for a spot but bear in mind that the case is created with an economist skill set in mind, and participants are evaluated on this. The nine best teams are invited to present their solution in a semifinal, with the three winners proceeding to the final. The winning team will take home the glory alongside a sharpened case-solving toolbox and a spot in PCC IMPACT in Autumn.
A CASE IN ECONOMICS
The case is written with an economist skill set in mind and provides a unique opportunity to apply economic theory from your studies to current and real issues in some of the most influential Danish organizations. The emphasis on economics is also reflected in the evaluation of the solutions and as a participant, you should expect quantitative work to a central element to analysis.
