Peak Time - Business Competition in Europe

Thanks to Xianjin for highlighting this!

"Peak Time is the biggest business competition in Europe, attracting over 1600 participants from 47 countries in 2008. Participants will compete in engaging rounds of real-world business simulations and case studies prepared by McKinsey&Co to vie for a place in the grand finals in Riga, Latvia. Application is free and the preliminary rounds are conducted online. For more information, one can visit Peak Time

I took part last year and was fortunate to reach the grand finals in Riga, where my team emerged amongst the top 10. However, I was informed that there are no Malaysian students taking part this year and it's pretty disappointing considering there is very active participation from students from NUS, NTU and SMU. In fact a Singaporean team won in 2007 and two Singaporean teams reached the finals in 2008."

If you want to learn from Xianjin's experience, do post your questions here, and I'll let him know. This competition would be a great exposure!!!

Requirements to apply:

1. All team members should be undergraduate students (MSc. MBA and etc. students are not eligible to take part in the competition).
2. There can be no more than 2 students in a team who have already participated in the Peak Time finals.
3. Organizers of previous years’ Peak Time are not allowed to apply.

Application Deadline is 5th February 2009 6am
