Business Case Competition (BCC) is a yearly competition event held by Research Center and Case Clearing House (RC-CCH) of PPM School of Management. This was the third year for BCC with the theme “Future Business Leader : Innovate to Lead”. In the third BCC, the participants were challenged to solve a case of PT. TIKI Jalur Eka Nugraha (JNE). The participants consisting of bachelor degree (S1) program students from Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, and Bekasi (Jabodetabek) and West Java regions presented innovative and strategic ideas that can make a company more superior than its competitors. 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 the business practitioners and academicians to defend their ideas.

BCC 2012 Organizing Committee Chairman, Pepey Riawati Kurnia, said that the cases selected to be the subjects of discussion in each BCC were intentionally sourced from local companies. “In addition to produce local company cases as learning materials, this event is also aimed at sharpening the ability of students in analyzing a business case.”  This activity was participated by 63 teams, proving that this competition is highly attractive to relevant students. Among 63 teams registering and presenting analyses/researches on the case provided, only 9 teams became finalists and competed in the final session (debate and question & answer sessions) to be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th winners, which was held on 31 May 2012 at PPM School of Management, Jalan Menteng Raya No. 9-19 Jakarta Pusat.
