The World's Second Global, Virtual Case Comp for High School Student


Official 2021 Case has been released. Register before Oct 15th to receive your case.


Introduction to VGCC

VinUniversity Global Case Competition (VGCC) is an international event in which the best students from all over the world can compete to solve a business problem for a chance to engage with top industry leaders and academic scholars and win up to $USD 10,000. This annual competition is hosted by VinUniversity, a not-for-profit university in Vietnam, with advice and mentorship from faculty and experts at Cornell University. Our goal is to provide contestants a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a challenging and stimulating learning experience, and to apply their analytical and problem-solving skills to address real-world issues and create large-scale impact. Our ultimate goal is to inspire and empower students to become future drivers of positive change. VGCC will feature a real-life, high-stakes business problem faced by a globally reputable organization in the field. Through an intense, fast-paced and highly collaborative process, contestants will demonstrate their ability to develop concrete, actionable recommendations backed up by compelling arguments, and produce in-depth research and analyses of the industry, the problem, and the possible solutions. Unlike traditional case competitions, VGCC winners will also have the opportunity to engage with leaders of the collaborating organization and participate in the implementation scheme for the organization’s solution.

The case competition is open to currently registered, full time undergraduate and graduate students from any part of the world.
