ACC's History

The idea of Aarhus Case Competition started in 2011. Jesper Agerholm and Anders Thomsen, the founders of ACC, established Aarhus Case Competition to show students the “magnificence of case competitions.” Jesper and Anders wanted to provide a case competition with open doors for any student, regardless of educational profile and background, wishing to challenge themselves. The students would gain valuable tools and improve their skill set in problem-solving through workshops and several cases. The competencies gained at a case competition are fundamental tools for analyzing and communicating in a professional environment. What the students experience during a case competition is no different from what they can expect when entering the real world outside the university. Regardless of what sector you choose to pursue a career within, a common denominator is that you usually must solve a problem and communicate your solution. Essentially, this is what a case competition is dealing with.

The first edition of Aarhus Case Competition took place in 2012. Since then, the competition has been an annual event at Aarhus University, School of Business and Social Sciences. Participating in ACC provides students with basic skills on how to approach a problem, whether that problem is within communication or finance. ACC creates a bridge between theory and practice by bringing real-life cases to the students.
