After receiving a grand success in Casessination, BRAC University Business Club (BIZ BEE) launched the second instalment of its signature event, ‘Ispahani presents Casessination 2.0.’ 

It’s a global inter-university, 360-degree interactive business case competition, sponsored by Ispahani Limited. The event was launched on the 24th of October initially online, on the Facebook page of BIZ BEE with the slogan ‘Glory Awaits.’

In his speech, Mr Galib Bin Muhammad, honourable judge of the ceremony, said that in this time of globalisation, even graduates from the top universities of the world are in the same competition with the students of Bangladesh. Therefore, he emphasised the importance of keeping an open mind and encouraged students to have a competitive mindset.

The competition was divided into three rounds. The first two rounds were held online and the grand finale was held at the auditorium of BRAC University. 

In every round, the teams were tested as the competition put them under immense pressure with progressive challenges. They were evaluated by the judging panel full of corporate leaders who crucially analysed the teams on the basis of time management, analytical ability, execution capabilities, feasibility and creativity. 

The grand finale embraced a prodigious panel of judges namely Galib Bin Mohammad, Head of Marketing, Arla Foods Bangladesh, Mohammed Zia Uddin, Cluster Head of Supply, Reckitt and Ashraf-Ull-Bari, EVP & Head of Brand, bKash Limited.
