About us

Our Mission

We want Aarhus Case Competition to become the most challenging and rewarding case competition – anticipated every year by students and the business community throughout the Nordics. Furthermore, we wish to promote a case competition culture, which will be mutually beneficial to businesses as to the educational society in Aarhus, Denmark, and the rest of the Nordic countries. ACC plans to achieve this through constant collaboration with business partners, continued focus on network expansion and improving brand recognition.

Our Vision

Aarhus Case Competition 2022 will be an exceptional event, organised in a way unlike its predecessors. ACC 2022 will be hosted as a hybrid event – allowing participation in physical and virtual form. This enables ACC to achieve its objective of spreading the experience of Case Solving to more students than ever. ACC 2022 strives to deliver an event with high value, professionalism and unique experiences.

A Vision by Studenterlauget

ACC is one of many business units of Studenterlauget, which is the largest student organisation in Denmark with 4.000 members. The main purpose of Studenterlauget is to create the best possible social and professional opportunities for the students at Aarhus University, BSS. Aarhus Case Competition is one of the projects that Studenterlauget has launched in order to fulfill this vision.

Organising Committee 2022

The Organising Committee of Aarhus Case Competition is responsible for every aspect regarding the planning and execution of the event. The committee consists solely of voluntary students from different educational programmes at Aarhus University. This year, this group of students will work dedicated to continuing the success of previous competitions and thereby ensuring the future development of Aarhus Case Competition.

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.
