About the Event

The MSC Maritime Summit Case Challenge (MMSCC) is back BIGGER and BETTER!

Join us for the 2nd edition of MMSCC 2020, organized by the Singapore Maritime Foundation to challenge undergraduates to solve real-life challenges faced by maritime companies whilst working in teams. This is your chance to impress the senior management of Pacific Carriers Limited (PCL), PSA and Thome Group with your bright ideas and fresh perspectives!

Here, the three finalist teams will have 24 hours to develop their best solutions and impress the panel of judges from PCL, PSA, Thome, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), and the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF).
