(LONDON – February 8, 2012) – Hult International Business School is partnering with CNN for the 2012 Hult Global Case Challenge, the world’s largest business school competition to fight against poverty. CNN’s worldwide public service announcement helps the Hult Global Case Challenge raise awareness of innovative business solutions that can be implemented to help fight poverty in communities around the world. Now in its third year, the Hult Global Case Challenge is one of the world’s leading platforms for social change.
In partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative, the $1 million USD student competition has attracted thousands of students from 130 countries and over 300 institutions including Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Hult, Stanford, MIT, London Business School, INSEAD, CEIBS, and the Indian School of Business.
The 2012 Hult Global Case Challenge asks students to produce sustainable business models that aim to conquer global poverty. This year, students will focus on ways to make education, energy, and housing affordable for everyone. The Challenge will benefit One Laptop per Child, SolarAid, and Habitat for Humanity. Former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, Chairman of Unilever Michael Treschow, and Nobel Prize Winner and founder of Grameen Bank Mohammad Yunus will select the winning teams. President Bill Clinton will serve as this year’s keynote speaker at the New York City final in April and will present the $1,000,000 prize.
