International Olympic Case Study Competition

The “International Olympic Case Study Competition (CSC)” is an annual competition for master’s level students, which is organised by the IOC Olympic Studies Centre and the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz (Germany).  

The competition is to be played within a classroom setting and consists of teams of students competing against other teams, first within their own university class, and then against classes from other universities, with which they will be matched.

The students play as agencies that consult for an Olympic Movement organisation on topics related to current strategic management challenges in international sport

The teams reaching the semi-finals and finals compete against university teams from all around the world and will be judged by an international panel of academic and professional experts.
