The Event – 2021

The Event

MIP Business Game 2021 will be held entirely online, and it will last 5 days. During these days, participants will work in teams, analyzing and solving the business cases proposed by our Corporate Partners. Once selected to attend MIPBG2021, participants will be notified with all the instructions necessary to access the event platform. The first day of competition, participants will be automatically assigned to teams and will have approximately 3 days to deliver their outcome which will be later presented in front of company representatives. 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 days, there will be plenty of networking and learning opportunities such as keynote speeches, workshops, and one-to-one interviews to foster a 360° experience.
