Competition for communications graduates

Competition will kick off again in Copenhagen for aspiring communications professionals. The case is the Danish media group Egmont

This January, ten teams of communications graduates will compete in the Comcase competition, a joint initiative of Copenhagen Business School, the Danish Association of Communications Professionals and Young Communicators (UNGKOM).

Ten teams will have 24 hours to solve a case for a leading Danish company, which in previous years have included Mærsk and Carlsberg. Three teams will then be selected for the finals, and judged by a panel of Communications experts and professors.

Conducted in English, Comcase attracts Danish and international students across the country. Thomas Refstrup Dünweber, of Young Communicators, hopes that increased funding in 2014 can provide transport subsidies and attract applications from abroad.

Kick-off meeting Wednesday

The Danish media corporation Egmont will provide this year’s case, and host a kick-off meeting on Wednesday 27 November. Graduate students interested in competing will have the opportunity to learn more about Comcase, the company, and network with potential new teammates.

Young Communicators will also provide a match-making service to connect graduate students and help them form teams by the January deadline.

“Comcase is extremely fun” says Thomas, who is also a past Comcase winner. “There’s opportunities for face to face networking, and many have gotten jobs through Comcase.”
