Our company worked with four ambitious students on a marketing plan. We were really happy with the outcomes and would definitely recommend it to other companies.

The challenge is a very nice initiative for companies to get an innovative solution to a certain problem from motivated and smart Master students. The solutions are mostly out-of-the box as the students are not part of our business, which makes it very helpful to get a different perspective on a certain problem.
