The Event – 2020 – Online

The Event

The online event will last 10 days during which participants will work in teams. They will have to analyze, discuss and solve real-life business cases proposed by our corporate partners. Once selected to attend MIPBG2020, participants will be automatically assigned to teams and will have approximately 7 days to deliver their outcome and present their solution in front of the companies that launched the business challenge. For each challenge, teams will vary allowing students to get in touch with diverse participants. At the end, the jury will select the top 3 teams for each challenge, determining a challenge-winner. The performance achieved throughout different challenges will determine an overall-winner of the event, announced during the closing ceremony. Along the MIPBG week, there will be plenty of networking and learning opportunities such as keynote speeches, workshops, and one-to-one interviews to foster a 360° experience.
