We are a group of case enthusiasts. With our passion for case studies, we established the University of Münster Case Club as a student initiative in August 2016. Our common goal is to unite students from all over the world at our University in an annual Case Challenge.
To achieve this goal effectively, we split our tasks into six divisions:
Further, we strive to expand our personal competencies in case studies. We therefore offer training for presentations, analyze case studies ourselves, present them in front of other club members and give each other feedback. Thereby, our members learn to apply their theoretical knowledge in real-life business situations.
Motivated by recent successes in international case competitions, a group of students joined together and founded the University of Münster Case Club in August 2016. Since then, it is our common goal to organize a yearly case competition in Münster and to strenghten case study teaching at the University of Münster.
Case Study Analysis is a course in the Bachelor’s Programme for business students in Münster. Students get to know various concepts and tools to analyze critical business situations and issues. The course also conveys soft skills such as performing under time pressure, working in teams and taking on responsibility as students evaluate and present complex and multilayered business problems without sample solutions.
It is a special concern of the Chair of International Accounting to regularly draw students to international case study competitions. In order to improve the internationality and practical relevance of teaching, students take part in competitions in Ireland, Canada, Thailand and Norway in 2018. Further participations are shown in the overview below
Hereby, we would like to thank our faculty, especially the Chair of International Accounting and the Institute of Management Accounting & Control. Thank you for making these experiences possible and sharing our passion for case studies.
Two heads are better than one: Building a trustful, enjoyable, and strongly bonded relationship allows great ideas to emerge in a powerful, profound and efficient way. As the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, individuals combine their unique talents in groups, resulting in more efficient solutions. To us, collaboration among participants is essential to peak a team’s performance. Therefore, we are convinced that there is only one way to experience the UMCC – in unity.
