Business Case Competition Finals 2018
Business Case Competition 2018
From 12 sign ups, 8 submissions only the top 4 teams were selected for the Business Case Competition (BCC). The teams from Manado Independent School, IPEKA Integrated Christian School Jakarta, National High Jakarta School and Taman Rama School in Bali, were invited by Universitas Triatma Mulya Stenden in Bali to experience an educational and exciting 3 day programme in the island of the gods. In teams of 3 or 4 the students thereafter worked tirelessly to produce a case with particular reference to a business plan. This allowed the students to deepen their knowledge about the elements that start up firms and multinational companies go through in order to come up with a creative product and introduce it to the market. Last Friday the top 4 teams were presenting their cases in front of a jury and received their well deserved prizes that evening at the participant dinner which was held at Blue Water restaurant in Seminyak.
A 3 day programme was arranged for the students and their business teacher (chaperone) in charge courtesy of Universitas Triatma Mulya Stenden. The 1st day included a lunch and workshop to get the participants acquainted. On the 2nd day the students visited the Universitas Triatma Mulya Stenden campus site and participated in some exciting workshops led by some of the academic staff. Their presentations were made in front of a jury consisting of 3 industry professionals namely, Victor Jeoffre – Lecturer and Module coordinator of the Entrepreneurship in Action Programme at Universitas Triatma Mulya Stenden, Anais Amans as a guest jury member – french fashion designer and entrepreneur, Wadzi Chitambo – Alumnus of the International Hospitality Manangement Programme. “The 4 teams gave very impressive presentations in relation to the business proposals they had made over the past months. The students ideas ranged from a range of innovative ideas such as a mobile application to link a range or services, a sustainable rain water filtration and distribution system to conventional event organizer with a new take and even a puff pastry to be sold in cafe’s and supermarkets. “This made it a close call when it came to choosing the winners for the BCC 2017” – as mentioned by the jury.
Following this the winners were announced during the winner announcement dinner. During this dinner the students had the chance to chat with the alumni, academic staff, students from both the Hospitality and Business majors from all years inclusive of those who are on their internship and have done their study abroad experience in The Netherlands.
To close off this lovely event the BCC winners were announced with the Vincitore team (Andrew Jonathan Hartono, Anthony Ngadiyoto, Bretton Shawpindo and their Chaperon Mr Herman) from IPEKA Integrated Christian School Jakarta claiming the BCC 2018 title. Each individual member of the team walked away with a IDR 50,000,000 tuition fees reward voucher to study at Universitas Triatma Mulya Stenden alongside with gift vouchers valued at IDR 2,000,000. The runner ups received gift vouchers valued at IDR 1,500,000. Overall it was such a pleasure to witness the joy the students had as a result of this competition after all the hard work. As part of the 3 day programme the students then visited Bali Culture Center where by they got to know more about the Balinese culture and had the chance to say goodbye to the other teams of which aside from the competitive nature of the event new friendships had blossomed. All in all we would like to say congratulations to the IPEKA Integrated Christian School Jakarta students for winning the case and congratulations to all the contestants of the BCC. We are truly grateful for all the people who made this 3 days Business Case Competition 2018 event possible!
