The 16 qualifying teams are invited to a Championship Round hosted by a NIBS member institution; locations have included Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Guatemala, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the UK, and the United States.
  • The NIBS Worldwide Business Plan Competition was launched in 2011, and is open to undergraduate and master’s students.  It consists of a Qualifying and Final Round, and is 100% virtual (no travel required).
  • The NIBS/EcoSim Business Simulation Competition was launched in 2021, to reflect the challenges of the global pandemic.  This competition is 100% online and designed to support internationalisation on campus.
