Case Competition
HKUST Inter-University Public Policy Case Competition 2021
The inaugural Inter-University Case Competition was hosted in April 2019 at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Following the successful trial, the Division of Public Policy and the Institute for Public Policy at HKUST, together with the School of Humanities and Social Science and the Division of Social Science, will continue to host the Competition in 2021. The Competition provides students with an opportunity to analyze pressing public policy issues and recommend practical solutions to policy makers; and develops students’ practical problem-solving, decision-making, critical thinking, teamwork, and presentation skills.

 

Full-time sub-degree, undergraduate and postgraduate (taught and research) students from all higher education institutions in Hong Kong are eligible for participation. All eligible students may form a team of 3 to 4 members. Members of the same team must be affiliated to the same institution. Each team may consist of members from the same discipline/education level or a variety of disciplines/education levels. All cases for the competition are developed by the Division of Public Policy and the Institute for Public Policy at HKUST. Each case features the background of a public policy challenge that real-life policy makers need to address. Winning team will be awarded up to HKD 8,000 in cash prizes.
