Competiton format

Cases

CUBE is designed to provide unique competition format that not only challenges the teams, but also focuses on the professional development of the competitors. The competition consists of a pre-case, a short, 7-hour case and a 24-hour case. The teams solve and submit the pre-case at home, in the duration of two weeks.

Rule book

Divisions and Finals

The first round of the case presentations is the divisional round, which consists of teams presenting to a specific panel of judges assigned to each division. The winners of each division will present in the finals.

The pre-case is an exception, because only the 4 best teams (selected as finalists by the jury) will present their solutions to the judges. 

We place significant emphasis on the learning experience beyond the competition. Therefore, teams will receive personalized feedback in each round.
