What is SBC3?

The Social Business Consulting Case Competition (SBC3) is a yearly and as it is the new branded EKIM, exciting case competition held throughout the month of Mai by the Social Business Club, in collaboration with two partnerclubs. This year, we are happy to be partnering with Toastmasters St.Gallen to deliver another exciting edition!

Why SBC3?


Participation in SBC3 enables students to further develop their analytical and problem-solving skills while having a meaningful impact by helping companies to solve real problems. Moreover, by providing the opportunity to solve these real-life cases, the competition serves as preparation for the more extensive Capstone Project.


Students have the unique chance to practice solving case studies in the world of social businesses, to receive valuable feedback from the companies and from Dr Simon Pfister on their work, as well as to choose a final prize.

How does SBC3 work?

Four to six teams, each composed of four motivated participants, go through preparation and coaching with the support of Dr Simon Pfister, solving practice cases. Afterwards, the students work on specific, real-life issues provided by companies. In the end, a final feedback round is held, in which the companies receive and comment on the conclusions reached by the students. 


Therefore, the participants benefit from this experience by enhancing useful skills and being rewarded, while the companies get insights into possible solutions to address their real issues.
