UKCC 2020

 

 

 

 

Our annual London Case Competition (LCC) returned as the UK Case Competition (UKCC) in 2020. In this inaugural event co-organised with the LSESU Consultancy Society, UCL Business Society, Imperial College Consultancy Society, and the Irish Student Consultancy Group. Students from across the United Kingdom and Ireland traveled to the heart of London, to King’s College London, to participate in this nation-wide competition that determined the first title holder of the UK Case Champion.

The event consisted of two rounds, with the first round consisting of 23 teams, and the final round consisting of 5 teams. After a fierce battle between the best case crackers of the British Isles, and of all the participating universities, the University of Aberdeen were the victors, claiming their victory as the first holders of the title of the UK Case Champion. This was a stellar victory that saw Aberdeen toppling Imperial after their two year streak as the London Case Champions.
