The SICC Model
Hosted by Recanati Business School, the Sofaer International Case Competition (SICC) brings together eight global teams from leading international business schools worldwide and four local teams representing Israeli business schools.
Participating teams receive the strategic case a day after their arrival. The strategic case, designed specifically for the Competition by a professional Recanati, focuses on a strategic challenge or dilemma facing an Israeli company operating in global markets. The company at the focus of the case will be kept confidential until the presentation of the case and will only then be made available to the participating teams. The teams will analyze the case during the next three days.
On the day of the Competition, participating teams will present their solutions to a panel of academics from the participating universities, who will select the three finalists. During the final event, held on the same evening, the three finalists will present their solutions to a panel of business leaders and academics, in front of an audience of 200 academics, top executives and students. The winning team will then be selected and announced.
Recanati provides the participating global teams with full accommodations during the week of their stay. The accommodations provided include meals, transportation, networking activities and a one-day trip to Jerusalem. Flight costs are excluded.
