On December 4, 4 teams of undergraduate students competed in the Australian Undergraduate Business Case Competition (AUBCC), held at UNSW Australia.

The final four teams originated from UNSW Australia, Queen’s University, and the University of Melbourne with the National University of Singapore defeating the competition.

For the final business case, each team had to present business strategies for the Smith Family’s Let’s Count program for disadvantaged communities in Australia. Let’s Count is an early numeracy program for children who generally start school already behind their peers. The teams had to minimise cost and maximise learning potential for the Smith Family’s program to be effective.

16 National and international teams attended the competition, hosted by the UNSW Business School. Students participated in 3 business case an​​​alyses to solve real-world business problems under time limits. ​

A joint initiative of the University of Melbourne Faculty of Business and Economics, UNSW Australia Business School, and the Queensland University of Technology Business School, AUBCC is designed to showcase Australia as a high performing economy and a respected place to visit, study and work.

AUBCC is in its second year, with the 2016 event to be in Melbourne and the 2017 event in Brisbane.
