SKILLBRIDGE – STUDENT CASE CHALLENGE
Innovations in the life science field are increasing at a rapid pace, thereby requiring a greater collaboration between different actors. This has become especially clear over the past year during the pandemic, but also when we look at the rapid development we face in the future with innovative treatments.
Welcome to the second edition of Stockholm Skillbridge, the case competition
where Sweden’s top-tier schools within medicine, communication, engineering, and economics solve problems together.
Pfizer is the client and will present a case challenge on the topics of Public
Private Partnerships, new business models and new patterns of communication to focus on challenges in interacting with public actors.
During the course of a weekend, you as a student will have the possibility to
cooperate with other disciplines to solve a real-life problem, stretching over
Pfizer will, together with the management consulting firm Arthur D. Little,
support with guidance, methodologies and industry competence.
Teams of four students will present their solution through pitch/video, business case presentation and implementation/execution along with Q&A from the jury.
Students of the winning team will be rewarded with a Pfizer internship,
custom-made based on the chosen field of study.
New ideas tend to build on cross-boundary cooperation. Stockholm SkillBridge’s unique case challenge format provides you with opportunity to solve the case in cooperation with students from Berghs SoC, KI, KTH and Stockholm School of Economics. You apply individually but will join a team with students representing the different specializations (see below).
