BloC Boardroom Challenge 2020
This unique case challenge for B-schoolers is in its fourth year. In the first year of the challenge in 2017, LIBA, Chennai, were the winners, followed by ISB Hyderabad in 2018 and IIM Ranchi in 2019. In all the previous years the semi-final round of the contest was held at B-schools across various cities, which hosted the event. The 2019 contest was held across 8 cities with participation from all the top B-schools.
The preliminary round in all the previous years has always been online where students are administered a psychometric test to assess their decision-making skills and ability to work in teams. The grand finale, where B-schools which won city-specific semi-finals competed for the grand prize, has been held in Chennai. It was almost like an IPL Finals with keen minds from top B-schools presenting to a top jury.
This year, keeping in mind the safety of the students and others involved in this contest, it is being conducted entirely online, including the semi-final rounds and the finals as well. It will again be a unique event with technology overcoming the challenge the pandemic has brought about. May the best team win the 2020 BLoC Boardroom Challenge.
