Throughout the competition, students were confronted with various problems, in the areas of logic, leadership, strategy and analysis. In order to solve the problems, students should be familiar with some general information about management, consumer habits, average prices of goods and statistics of business phenomena in Croatia. In the end, the most important part is to come to a logical conclusion.
It is important to mention there were no correct answers and the questions were asked in a way that the jury could see how the individual thought in a given situation. They had 30 minutes allocated for each task and were expected to solve it in the best way possible. The criterion of evaluation was divided into segments of creativity, precision and personal impression. Even for the abstract assignments the jury wanted to see a creative approach taken by the students.
Of the many registered contestants (125), after the elimination there remained the best 12 contestants for the final. They had been given the opportunity to solve the tasks prepared by Bamboo Lab, COBE Tech, Inchoo, the association Osijek Software City and of course GDi.
