HSBC/HKU Asia Pacific Business Case Competition 2019
The University of Hong Kong Faculty of Business and Economics

The HSBC Business Case Competition attended by our graduate trainee, Ngonidzashe Gurure, was a consulting case competition for undergraduate students from all across the world, but focusing mainly on the Asia-Pacific region.

The team representing Mauritius was composed of four members coming from Mauritius, Zimbabwe and Egypt. There were three rounds to the competition, each round having a different business case which was developed by the Asia Case Research Centre (ACRC). Teams were required to prepare a presentation for the proposed case, before putting it forward to a panel of three to four senior business executives from the international business community. The students had to solve the case and come up with their solutions and implementation plan solely based on the information provided in the case and their own knowledge.

Ngoni’s team first had to present and solve the business case for “How the US government, from an economic point of view, should address their trade deficit with China”. Their second case asked the team “How a fast-growing technology company should improve their mobility packages for their expatriate employees”, and their final case required them to solve the question: “How a market intelligence company, based in Germany, specifically for the Construction of raw materials, can enter new markets”.

The team was presented with the “The Most Collegiate Team Award” at the awards ceremony.
