The Sefa Case Club

Looking for an opportunity to connect with the Dutch corporate scene? To test your academic skills on real business cases? All while growing both personally and professionally with fellow inspiring students from all over the world? Join the Sefa Case Club!

The Sefa Case Club is a community at the faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam that practices case solving. We apply academic theory and practical training to teach students to solve real-life business cases. Business cases are documents written by company professionals that detail a problem that a certain public organization or private company is encountering. The topics covered range from finance to corporate social responsibility (CSR), and from marketing to digital innovation. Cases are typically solved in teams of 4 students, in a timeframe ranging from 3 to 28 hours, and are presented to and judged by a panel of academic staff, consultants, and industry professionals. To train our members and prepare them for international case competitions, we host training, workshops, and case days throughout the year.

The Sefa Case Club combines preparing ambitious students for international case competitions, as well as organizing the Amsterdam Case Competition.
