Held over 4 days – Students from all over the world – Coming together to create something you never experienced before – Be part of the challenge and apply for the anniversary challenge – August 21st to 24th in Iserlohn, Germany
The Rubicon Contest is one of the most international Case Study Contests organized by students. It takes part during four days at Business and Information Technology School (BiTS) in Iserlohn. Young people from all over the world come together to compete in thrilling case studies and exchange ideas about future issues.
The case studies you solve deal with different economic problems. Parts of them are developed in cooperation with well-known companies. They put your expertise, analytical and innovative intellectual capacity to the test. An expert jury rates the solutions of the teams and decides the winner of the Rubicon Contest 2016 based on objective criteria.
First and foremost Rubicon means getting in touch with international students from all over the world. It is a platform for intensive discussions on the topics and ideas on the future of our economy. You will enhance your network by getting in touch with students and business representatives, go back home with new business cards in your pocket, and make new friends from all over the world.
As the organizers of the tenth Rubicon Contest we are proud to look back on a special success story and to be able to write the next chapter of this remarkable event. It is our deep wish to create an unforgettable event for everyone participating in Rubicon 2016. We are ready to make the Contest thrive another time by striking new ideas, an outstanding competition, and a relevant topic. This year the main focus will be on “Digitization and the Internet of Things”
The next Rubicon will take place on 21st to 24th August 2016 in Iserlohn, Germany - 10th anniversary!
The students from BiTS behind Rubicon have been busy planning the event for a few months. Within the organizational team there are five areas:
Project Manager: The main person responsible for ensuring that Rubicon 2016 is a success. Coordinating and supervising the various organizational teams, solving problems, motivating members, and serving as a contact person for the community at large, are just a few of the tasks the Project Manager has to accomplish.
Sponsoring: The Rubicon Contest depends not only on the commitment of our students and participants, but also on the generous support of our partners. This team is responsible for contacting companies with attractive sponsoring concepts and providing liaison and support services throughout the event.
Event Management: From airport transfers, accommodation arrangements, gala dinner planning, or leisure program development for the participants, the organizational talents behind the Event Management team make sure that the many interconnected parts of Rubicon function together seamlessly.
Team Management: Teams from the four corners of the world find their way to Iserlohn thanks to the hard work by this group, which manages the application process from the moment of first contact through to selection, as well as the mentoring every participating team receives during the competition.
Media Relations: Have you heard about the Rubicon Contest? That may well be thanks to this team's work, responsible for public relations and marketing. Whether on social media or press releases, Media Relations provides consistent and up-to-date information about the contest to a wide audience.
