Northern Biotech Consulting Case Competition

May 4, 2016


We are now welcoming applicants to NBI's Northern Biotech Consulting Case Competition. The nature of this competition hopes to bring together students and professionals from a range of multidisciplinary backgrounds to focus on consulting and biotechnology.


Acting as consulting firms, teams will present a recommendation to our expert judges on which start-up a large biotech company should acquire to increase its portfolio. Teams will  be  presented  with  profiles  of  several  companies  containing  information  regarding  intellectual property,  product portfolio  and  clinical  trial  data.  The  teams  are  then  asked  to  make  a  recommendation  regarding  a deal  between  the  client  and  the  potential case  companies.  The winning  team  will  be  awarded  a £1000 cash prize sponsored by Adelphi.


We are asking teams of 3 to 5 graduate students* to first register their interest here, then apply to the competition by the extended deadline of May 27th 2016.


Graduate students currently enrolled at northern UK institutions across Greater Manchester and beyond (Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, York and others) are highly encouraged to apply. 


*Please note that this was previously specified as 4 or 5 members before 17 May 2016! The new team size criteria is a minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 members.



To apply:


Step One: Register your interest by ordering an Eventbrite ticket. Please note that those who are interested in attending the competition as part of the general audience (and not as part of a competing team) should also register here.
