16 teams, 12 universities: needless to say the atmosphere was electrifying! Here we were in Beijing, to represent the NUS Business School in an exclusive “by invitation only”, non-profit case challenge organized by the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in conjunction with Microsoft “FirenzeChina”.
