UW Global Business Case Competition

GBCC 2019 Champions

UW Global Business Case Competition 2019 Champions: Copenhagen Business School

The UW Global Business Case Competition (GBCC) is a leading international case competition that brings together undergraduate students from the United States and around the world to compete in a fast-paced and challenging business case study. Starting in 1999 as the Global Business Challenge, our competition is one of the oldest of its kind.

UW GBCC 2021 will be held virtually from April 15-26, 2021. To express interest in UW GBCC 2022, please complete this form by July 1, 2021.


UW GBCC enables students to build meaningful, cross-cultural relationships, experience what the city of Seattle has to offer and most importantly, challenges them with the task of analyzing and developing a business recommendation for two real-world case studies. The competition concludes with each team presenting their case solutions to a panel of industry-leading judges, who are tasked with the difficult decision of selecting the UW GBCC champions.

Congratulations to our 2019 GBCC Champions, Copenhagen Business School!
