The Department of Marketing held its second MKT Business Case Competition on 22 December 2021. A total of 75 undergraduate and postgraduate students from the Department formed 20 teams to join the competition, and ten shortlisted teams presented and competed for prizes on that day. Before the competition, the Department had arranged professional trainer to teach students case cracking and presentation skills.

The competition was supported by Price.com.hk, a well-known price comparison platform in Hong Kong which has a strong online presence in the consumer electronic category. To further expand its business, Price.com.hk wants to tap into the growing consumer healthcare e-commerce market.

Students also needed to help the company establish a strong brand image in the field.

Price.com.hk will offer internship opportunities to the champion teams and would consider executing outstanding ideas suggested by students. The company also
