From 18 submissions the top 4 teams were selected for the Business Case Competition (BCC).

In teams of 3 the students thereafter worked tirelessly to produce a case with particular reference to the Nike Smartfit campaign. This allowed the students to deepen their knowledge about Nike as a brand and multinational company and to come up with a creative new marketing strategy. Last Friday the top 4 teams were presenting their cases in front of the jury (including GO Jek and Nuffic Neso) and received their well deserved prices in the evening at our 5-star partner hotel Alila Seminyak.
