Schneider Electric’s International Business Case Challenge

Schneider Electric’s international business case challenge (the “Contest”), also called Go Green in the City, aims at supporting the emergence of innovative solutions to meet future challenges in intelligent energy.

The Contest is organized in three steps, with each step followed by a period of review, assessment and selection who will move onto the next stage in the competition.

  • Phase I – Submission of the Initial Application will run from February 8, 2018 – June 1, 2018 (as defined below).
  • Phase II – Semi-finals, as defined below, will run until September 3, 2018.
  • Phase III – The Final Round will run until the final presentations in November 2018.

The Final award will be announced by the jury upon the conclusion of the Final presentations during November 2018.

Only university students eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of submission of the Initial Application are permitted to submit their proposals.

Students worldwide must be registered in a bachelor’s (at least the 2nd year), master’s or MBA program of business or engineering are eligible to compete in the Contest.

The Contest is open exclusively to individual students in teams of two, of which at least one team member is female. Both of the team members must study in the same country for the duration of the competition. They are not, however, required to be from the same university, nor are they required to study the same subject or be in the same year, as long as they are not in their first year of their undergraduate education.

Likewise, the students are not required to be permanent residents or nationals of the country in which they are studying in order to compete. Should an individual student Entrant be disqualified, that Entrant’s team will no longer be able to participate.
