HSBC Bangladesh and Brac Business School in partnership recently organized the finale and award giving ceremony of the “Business Case Competition 2021”. 

Three teams from Bangladesh were selected as the Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners from a group of six finalist teams. 

A total of 60 teams from 30 universities in the country participated virtually this year in the wider competition, reads a press release.

The qualifying teams consisted of university students from the leading universities of Bangladesh. 

The finalist teams received a business case challenge on “Climate Change” and presented their solutions and recommendations to a panel of judges. 

Zunaid Ahmed Palak, state minister for Information and Communication Technology Division, attended the event as chief guest. 

Md Mahbub ur Rahman, CEO of HSBC Bangladesh and Mohammad Mahboob Rahman, VP of Administration, advisor for Business and Executive Programme at Brac Business School, and treasurer of Brac University, also spoke at the event.

Commenting on the programme, Md Mahbub ur Rahman said: “At HSBC, we are committed to providing our customers, communities and our people with the skills needed to succeed in a global economy. It has been an honour to be playing a role in nurturing Bangladesh’s future business leaders and entrepreneurs, who in turn will play their part in building a prosperous Bangladesh.” 

The judging panel included Derek Griffiths, head of Trade and Investment for Bangladesh at the Department for International Trade of the British High Commission in Dhaka; Asif Saleh, executive director of Brac; Simeen Rahman, group CEO of Transcom Group; and Kevin Green, country head of Wholesale Banking at HSBC Bangladesh.
