Consulting Case Competition

The North West Biotech Initiative is delighted to welcome you to the 2021 edition of the NWBI Consulting Case Competition!

Competition Overview

During this three-day online event we hope to bring together students and professionals from a range of multidisciplinary backgrounds to focus their efforts on analysing a fictitious consulting case.

The schedule consists of a workshop day, mentorship day and a competition day spread over three weeks in June. During these days, competitors will learn the necessary skills required to analyse a case, discuss the process of producing a consulting proposal, and finally pitch their findings to a panel of judges for the chance to win £600!

The Problem

Daraga Inc. is a large fictional pharmaceutical company searching for advice on the acquisition of a range of biotechnology SMEs, as it looks to expand its portfolio. There are five potential biotech companies on offer. Could you help?
