THE WORLD’S FIRST VIRTUAL, GLOBAL, HIGH SCHOOL CASE COMPETITION
Tiger Global Case Competition brings the business case competition experience, usually reserved for university students, directly to high school students (aged 13 – 18.) The best part? Because the competition is 100% virtual, there are no geographical barriers to entry; students around the world can develop and test their creativity and entrepreneurial spirit on the global stage!
History of TGCC
The first TGCC was held in 2017 and attracted high school students from all over the world, culminating with the global finals held in Singapore.
TGCC then expanded its reach in 2018 and received hundreds of registrations from seven countries and 10 cities. A team of students from Vietnam ultimately became the global winners of TGCC after the finals round in Canberra, Australia.
In 2020, TGCC transformed into a completely virtual competition and registered over 2,500 Competitors. The winning team, hailing from the UAE, took the first prize for their research skills, collaborative work, and their detailed proposal.
TGCC 2021 is now open for registrations!
Case competitions are the perfect stepping stones to a career in any industry. Big corporations and startups alike need skilled problem-solvers. For the ﬁrst time, ambitious high school students have the opportunity to join a virtual case competition from every country around the world!
WHAT IS A CASE COMP?
A team of students is supplied with a business scenario of a real company facing challenges. Students step into the shoes of management consultants to identify the most prominent issues and craft a solution. Each team has a certain amount of time to develop a strategy to address the key issues and present to a team of judges. The team that presents the best solution wins the competition and has cracked the case!
Below is a condensed version of the 2020 TGCC Global Round case study:
Case study: Sony is launching its highly anticipated “Playstation 5” on 12th November 2020, likely to much global fanfare. The Board and Executives are seeking to develop a strategy to ensure its successful launch and monetization while positioning Sony for future financial strength.
Challenge: Develop a business plan for Sony’s game & network services segment to find new ways to keep customers loyal and dedicated, all while continuing to monetize this base in between console releases.
Winning strategies require attention to detail, creativity, and business acumen. Whilst competition formats differ around the world, the essence is for students to emulate industry practices and apply technical knowledge. Case teams must be able to work as a team to present a cohesive recommendation to a mock board of directors who judge their work.
TGCC 2021 takes place in August and September. The competition is comprised of two key rounds, the regional qualifiers, held across five different regions, followed by the global finals. In order to qualify for the global round, teams must compete against local teams in regional qualifiers.
