Students from University of Oxford Land Top Prize at 2021 Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition

A group of graduate students from the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford took first place in the ninth annual Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition at Duke University. The competition engages diverse, creative teams of graduate students to address real energy challenges affecting the developing world. Students are encouraged to propose unconventional, business-based solutions for an industry partner, exposing unrecognized opportunities with positive social and environmental impact.

The competition awards $15K in prizes annually as part of Energy Week at Duke. It is organized by the MBA Energy Club at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and is sponsored by the James E. Rogers Energy Access Project at Duke.

Over the course of fall 2021, the competition engaged a record 108 teams of graduate students from universities spanning eight countries across the world.
