2012 winners announced
The 2013 EFMD Case Writing Competition is now open for entries.
The 2012 EFMD competition was the most successful so far, with a record-breaking 211 submissions.

The coveted ‘Best of the Best’ category will be chosen from all the category winners by a panel of judges including ecch Director, Richard McCracken.

All winning cases are publicised across the EFMD network and published by ecch, with winning entries receiving €2000 thanks to the generosity and continued support of the competition sponsors. In addition, the ‘Best of the Best’ winner is featured in EFMD’s Global Focus Magazine, and awarded with an engraved plate at the EFMD Annual Conference Awards Ceremony.
