Nespresso Sustainability MBA Challenge


The Challenge


The world’s leading premium portioned coffee brand, Nestlé Nespresso,  in partnership with the Sustainable Markets Intelligence Center (CIMS) and Latin America’s leading Business School INCAE organize and manage the global case competition “Nespresso Sustainability MBA Challenge”. The Challenge case study is elaborated by INCAE Business School and CIMS in close collaboration with Nespresso. It is a new, not-yet published, case created specifically for each edition of the Challenge.

In 2017, Nespresso engaged with the academic world and inspired 88 different MBA schools and Universities with master's degree programmes, to take part in the fifth edition of the Nespresso Sustainability MBA Challenge. See Challenge 2017 results for case study topic and semi-finalists.
