Case Studies are analysis of people, events, decisions, periods, projects, policies, institutions, or other systems that are studied holistically by one or more methods. The case that is the subject of the inquiry will be an instance of a class of phenomena that provides an analytical frame (an object) within which the study is conducted and which the case illuminates and explicates. Rather than using samples and following a rigid protocol (strict set of rules) to examine limited number of variables, Case Study methods involve an in-depth examination of a single instance or event: a case. They provide a systematic way of looking at events, collecting data, analysing information, and reporting the results.
During the Case Study competition, students are given a real life situation and will have to use their vision with active state of mind and be creative to find a solution in a certain time, according to some guidelines that they will receive in the beginning. This competition involves a lot of project management, team building and communication skills.
