The presented practice is a global students’ case study competition (ranked among the top 10 global competitions in the world) from a Serbian university that gathers university, business, and government. Business and Government offer real life cases to groups of students from top ranked international Universities, who are competing to find the best actionable solutions, thus generating a cascade of benefits for all the actors involved.
