The Marketing and International Business Club of North South University (NSU MIBC) successfully completed the Intra-Ignite 2022 business case competition, presented by Walton Laptop. With Education XYZ as the associate sponsor and driven by Shuttle, the event was organized in association with The Daily Star. In the second edition of the Intra-NSU business competition, more than 200 teams showed up for this grueling battle of business intellect. The event was held from September 10 to October 10 and featured a prize pool of BDT 30,000, which was split evenly among the top three teams.
The competition consisted of two rounds, two workshops, and a mentorship program, all of which were designed to challenge the mettle of the participants, as well as gave them the opportunity to learn from some of the top experts in the industry. In the first round, all of the teams were given a business case to solve based on real-world scenarios. Then in the second and final round, the teams that qualified were given the task of composing a business article from start to finish. Moreover, the simulation of a corporate environment, along with the guidance of business specialists, made it an ideal space for the participants to become more acclimated to what they could expect to face in their future careers.
The fierce competition between all the teams made the judges’ decisions extremely difficult. And by the end of the event, three teams emerged victorious – Edge Runners, 3 Pakhis, and Team Cheesecake, as they were crowned champions of Intra-Ignite 2022. In addition, it was announced that all the articles from the top six teams would be published in the Intra-Ignite 2022 event magazine. The award ceremony for the event took place on October 11th at North South University. And the stage was graced by the presence of Dr. M. Ismail Hossain (Pro-Vice-Chancellor of North South University), Dr. Abdul Hannan Chowdhury (Dean of the School of Business and Economics, North South University), Dr. Gour Gobinda Goswami (Director of the Office of Student Affairs, North South University), Dr. Tamgid Ahmed Chowdhury (Director of MBA & EMBA Programs, North South University), and Mr. Md.
