An Introduction

What do we do?

Our mission is to provide consultancy training to top RSM students and win international case competitions.

We train our ambitious members to become expert case solvers through working with leading consultancies, industry professionals, and `training curriculum. Our members are also selected to compete against other world-leading business schools in international case competitions.

Additionally, we organize our own competition

RSM STAR Case Competition

Why do we do it?

We pride ourselves in helping the applicable development of our ambitious members. The most capable of us are sent abroad, mostly funded by the university, to represent the Rotterdam School of Management internationally. Winners of these case competitions often get internships or job offers, and at the very least make some extremely valuable connections!

Overall, we want to guide you to reach your full potential professionally, academically, and socially. Although our society is competitive and academically oriented, our fellow student members are at the heart of the association.

The RSM STAR Case Competition

The RSM STAR Case Club board also organizes our home competition: the RSM STAR Case Competition. RSMCC is a unique opportunity for sixteen teams from top business schools worldwide to compete with each other by presenting their solutions to real-life business cases.

For Companies

The RSM STAR Case Club attempts to marry academic theory and practical exercise by training its members to become expert case solvers whilst organizing our own prestigious case competition (RSMCC). In order to do so, we partner with high-profile companies to educate our members through gaining a real-life insight.

As a partner of the RSM STAR Case Club you have the opportunity to expose your brand and get in contact with RSM’s most ambitious business students. You can do this by training our members, judging case days, and forming part of our internal case competitions.

In this section we answer the most frequently asked questions. Is your question not here? Reach out, we are happy to help you!

What is case solving?
Good question!

Cases are documents written by professors or company professionals that detail a problem that a certain public organization or private company is encountering. The topics we address in our case-solving days, and are exposed to in competitions, 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 limited amount of time, and are presented to and judged by a panel of academic staff, consultants and industry professionals.

How can I become a Case Club member?
Are you looking for a true extracurricular challenge? Then you should be applying to become a member of the RSM STAR Case Club.

With training from celebrated professors and professionals from real consulting companies, the RSM STAR Case Club provides insight, practical experience, and develops holistic thinking skills not learned in the classroom. We are looking for the best and brightest minds to join our team of dedicated case-solvers. If you can demonstrate an aptitude for academic excellence (GPA > 7.5), and a strong interest in case solving, then we encourage you to apply!

What are the differences between the Incoming Committee, Outgoing Committee and Executive Board?
As the previously known Case Society and Case Competition are now merged into the Case Club, the new board is now larger and includes three different sections. Firstly, the incoming committee focuses on organizing the home competition: RSM STAR Case Competition. Secondly, the outgoing committee focuses on training/developing our case solvers, and preparing our members to compete abroad. Thirdly, the Executive Board oversees both the incoming and outgoing committee.
