Azerbaijan Business Case Competition is an annual contest where the student teams of Azerbaijan’s top universities are participating. In this competition, students solve real business cases applying obtained knowledge in the field of finance, marketing, accounting, technology and administration, and later presenting them to the juries, representatives of various business companies in Azerbaijan.

Competition has been held since 2002 and this year ABCC celebrating its 14th year anniversary. Considering the lack of practice of business case analysis in Azerbaijan, the volunteers of MBA Enterprise Corps decided the launch of  this project.  Since 2006, the right of conducting this competition has been given to the US-Educated Azerbaijani Alumni Association (AAA).  Approximately 1000 very talented students so far participated in this project.

Azerbaijan Business Case Competition plays a significant role in the development of students’ analytical and presentation skills, as well as contributes to the career development and management skills.
