MSC Maritime Summit Case Challenge

The second edition of the MSC Maritime Summit Case Challenge (MMSCC) organised by the Maritime Singapore Connect (MSC) Office will be run completely virtual.

Join us at MMSCC 2020, organised 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 PACC Offshore Services Holdings (POSH), PSA and Thome Group with your bright ideas and fresh perspectives!

There are two rounds for this case competition – a Preliminary Round with corporate case studies, followed by the Grand Finals. Here, the three finalist teams will have 24 hours to develop their best solutions and impress the panel of judges from POSH, PSA, Thome, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), and the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF).

Engage in Executive Conversations with Senior Maritime Leaders
In place of the MSC Maritime Summit Dinner in 2019, the event finale has been modified for the Top 3 teams to receive a rare opportunity to be In Conversation with Senior Maritime Leaders. Differentiate yourself with this exclusive chance to network with the Senior Management of POSH, PSA, Thome Group and SMF over conversations.
