the harvard
global case

The Global Case Competition at Harvard is one of the world’s most prestigious case competitions organized by students. With this case competition, we intend to deliver a world-class learning experience through a hands-on business case, while providing networking opportunities to connect aspiring analysts with leading firms.

The Aim

To bring together the best students of economics and finance throughout the world and provide them with an incredible opportunity to learn and interact with other students from across the world, cultivate a powerful network, and engage with professionals within the industries of management and finance.

How Does HGCC Work?

The participating teams receive a digital copy of a case for which they have approximately two weeks to complete. A jury then chooses the top ten teams which qualify for the opportunity to make a short case presentation to a select panel of distinguished professors and industry professionals at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. ​


The HGCC is a recurrent event by the IFSA which takes place every year in April.


The winning team of the Harvard Global Case Competition is awarded with a cash prize of $10,000.
