CaseBilkent ’17

Each year, the Operational Research Club holds CaseBilkent, a case study competition. For CaseBilkent ’17, the club is using the motto “Bilkent Is Changing” as inspiration.

What makes this annual competition special is that it challenges Bilkent students to come up with ideas to change or improve some aspect of their own university. The topic is chosen according to the results of online and offline surveys conducted among Bilkent students throughout the year. The Operational Research Club then creates a case for study in consultation with the university administration. The actual competition takes place during CaseBilkent week, ending with the final presentations.

This year, the final presentations will take place on April 15, at a location on campus. The application deadline is April 8; teams of three people may apply.

To apply, please fill out the form at http://www.case bilkent.orbilkent.com/.
