Nordea Case Competition in Denmark

Are you an ambitious master student from a Danish business school or university? Do you want to use your skills on a real-life business case from the financial industry? 

Then Nordea Case Competition is a challenge tailor-made for you.

Are you ready to challenge yourself?

You will present an advanced solution to a real-life challenge, in relation to the rapidly changing banking landscape. The business case will be a mix of strategic problem solving and number crunching, making it relevant for a broad range of financially-interested students.

The case competition will take place over two days, where you will be trained and taught by Nordea experts, before you get to solve the case. 

You will present your case-solutions to members of Nordea’s senior management, who will assess your work and provide you with valuable feedback that can be useful in your future career. You will also meet representatives from Human Resources and have the opportunity to talk about career opportunities at Nordea.

And if I win?

You will take home a prize of DKK20.000 as the winning team. If you are among the two finalist-teams you will also be invited to experience a unique day at Nordea, including lunch with senior management representatives. 

What will happen during the competition? 

The competition takes place November 3-4 at Nordea’s headquarters at Strandgade 3 in Copenhagen. 

On the first day you will be presented to topics relevant to the case solution by Nordea top management and experts, receive case training and start solving the case, in teams determined by Nordea. You will hand in your work the morning after and presentations will begin around noon. The event will be concluded by a celebratory dinner for all participants where you can mingle with fellow contestants and Nordea employees. 

Nordea will cover transportation (up to DKK800) and hotel for participants living outside of Copenhagen.
