Corporiddlerz is back with exciting new challenges and business riddles

Over the years, BUP BCC’s flagship event, Corporiddlerz, has become a celebrated Inter-University business strategy competition among passionate business undergraduates.

This year, Corporiddlerz has returned with far greater challenges and rewards, with a newer face.

What is Corporiddlerz?

As the name suggests, Corporiddlerz is a series of business riddles.

What begins with an online case study later elevates to the point where participants strategize on (re)launching existing or new products and have to go for full-fledged project planning. As the rounds proceed, the riddles become more challenging and far more interesting.

The competition stands to tests the participants to the very limit of their knowledge and capacity to turn analytics into rational business decisions. And their struggle and enthusiasm will hardly go unrewarded.

This year, Corporiddlerz shall award 50K BDT for 2nd Runner-Up, 75K BDT for Runner-Up, and 100K BDT for the mighty champions!

Partners for this year

Corporiddlerz 2019 is powered by NRBC Bank with Independent Television as the media partner, Radio Foorti 88.0 FM as the radio partner, The Financial Express as the print media partner, HiFi Public as youth engagement partner, Moodron as the stationary partner, Wire as the digital media partner, and Narayanganj Dockyard as a strategic partner.

Here’s how to participate

Be a part of the biggest strategy based competition of the nation and gear up for the world of business, and register your team before October 15, 2019. Undergraduate students from the same university (can be from different disciplines) can form teams of four to participate.

Top Business Competitions in Bangladesh and everything you need to know

If you are a university student in Bangladesh, Business Competitions are not new terms to you. There’s a chance you know about most of them, there’s a higher chance you might have participated in a few of them. Why you should take part in one, is a discussion for another time. But for now, here’s everything you need to know about the most prestigious competitions in Bangladesh and how you need to prepare for them.

1.Battle of Minds by BAT

Battle of Minds, organised by British American Tobacco is one of the most prestigious and most rewarding business competitions in the country. Every year BAT holds Battle of Minds where university students who are in their final years get to participate for the highest glory. You face off the bests of the bests in the field and upon winning, you get a head start towards a rewarding career path.

Rounds: 4 (Online Exam-Focus Group Discussion-Business Pitch-Case Solving)

Team Members: 4

Awards: A Crest and a headstart in the recruitment process.

2. Bizmaestros by Unilever

Similar to BOM, Bizmaestros is arranged every year by another one of the corporate giants, Unilever. It has challenges and rewards similar to BOM and the competitions themselves are often competitors to each other. However, winning Bizmaestros also lands you a trip abroad to Unilever Future Leaders League, where you compete against international teams.

Rounds: 3 (Online Submission-Practical Marketing-Practical Marketing)

Team Members: 3

Awards: Certification along with a trip to Unilever Future Leaders League.

3. Telenor Youth Summit

The last one in the trio of Corporate giant competitions is the Telenor Youth Summit. Unlike previous ones, TYS accepts individual submissions. And as you can guess, the challenge is tougher, obviously. Subsequently, the reward is also higher. A trip to Norway sounds magical, doesn’t it?

Rounds: 3 (Idea Submission-Screening Round-Final Presentation)

Team Members: Individual submission

Awards: Trip to Norway.

Brandwitz is one of the most prominent students run business competitions in the country on University level.

You’ll be benefited most from the experience, the certification and the networking that you make.

Rounds: 4 (Case Solving-Product Branding-Practical Marketing-Idea Branding)

Team Members: 4

Awards: BDT 2,50,000.

The experience is certainly one of a kind.

Team Members: 4

Awards: BDT 3,00,000.
