Looking for a new twist in student competitions? Check out the Alliance of European Business Games, founded in 2013 with the goal of identifying and promoting tomorrow’s top business talent. Members include HEC Paris, Solvay School of Economics in Belgium, St. Gallen In Switzerland, Durham University in the United Kingdom, and Nova University in Portugal. The organization hopes to foster the creation of new business games across Europe with the ultimate goal of organizing a final Olympics-style competition among all business games to be held in Brussels.
At an event at HEC Paris in April, about 150 business students from around the world tackled six challenges presented by corporate partners on topics that included innovation, strategy, and corporate evolution. The candidates, selected through an online test, represented more than 30 nationalities and 30 business schools from around the world, including Russia, Europe, China, and the U.S. Entries were judged by HEC Business Games corporate partners: Crédit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank, Crédit Agricole S.A., Gameloft, and Lufthansa.
