The Royal Challenge is an annual case competition organised by the SCN. Designed to bring together students from across Europe, the first edition of the Royal Challenge was held in June 2022 at Imperial College Business School. The event was a huge success and left many European students hungry for more. The second edition is set to be held in November 2022 at Cambridge University Judge Business School (CJBS). With top universities from all over the world participating our aim is to unite students on a global scale. Check out our social media channels to stay up to date!
