Regional Business Case Competition (RBCC) is a yearly competitive event held by Research Center and Case Clearing House (RC_CCH) of PPM School of Management. This was the third year for RBCC which at that time carried the theme “Integrating Market and Competence-Based advantages for Sustainability”.

So far, RC-CCH has generated a lot of local business cases while maintaining reference to changes in the global business world. The business cases were then used as teaching materials, both in formal education and in various management trainings, not only benefited by PPM School of Management but also by other management education organizations, at national and international levels.

Several companies whose business cases have been presented include PT Garuda Indonesia (aviation service company), PT Tempo Inti Media (magazine and newspaper publishing company), Cipaganti Group (holding company beginning from transportation services and now starting to have businesses in mining and sea transportation services), TIKI JNE (delivery service company), and PT Tiga Pilar Sejahtera (food company).

The competition participants were challenged to solve a case of PT. Taman Impian Jaya Ancol. In this activity, the  groups of S2 students of Management Science study program from various universtities in South East Asia and China used knowledges, skills, and experiences they have obtained during their study in their respective schools to compete in the quality of analysis, synthesis, and presentation of a business case tha has never been published before.  The finalists of the competitions were tested not only for written analysis skill but also in a series of debate sessions among finalists and in business presentations in front of business practitioners and academicians to defend their ideas.

Like the previous year’s event, this RBCC 2012 was also participated by teams from neighbouring countries, including Asian Institute of Management  Philippines, Kasetsart Business School Thailand, University of Philippines Baguio, and Universiti Teknologi MARA Malaysia. The attendance of these foreign universities is a proof that the RBCC program held by PPM School of Management has been recognized by international academician communities, and is a very good opportunity to show international communities the existence of business schools in Indonesia and how local business community takes part and performs as the best with all of the wisdom of Indonesian typical business governance.
