The evaluation that could be taken from HSBC Business Case Competition is the unsufficient preparations that had put into. Also, the lack of mentoring was also the causeof unsuffient preparations of the delegate. Besides that, the coudh that had been asked to accompany the delegate, mr. Dimas Hendrawan S.E,M.M was cancelling due to his tight schedule and another important matters, so that the coach that was acoompanying delegates was lecturer assistant, ms. Arlisya Tika Affandi, an undergraduate students of accounting class of 2013. The recommendation for team to join the next HSBC Business Case Competition years ahead is the faculty should conduct the selection so that those who will is really competent. Also, the delegates should be at least at the 2nd years and each teams concist of diffenrent majors in economics and business faculty. Not to mention, the faculty urged to conduct a training to solve the business case routinely, and be mentored by the expertise. Finally, hopefully the next delegates’ team is better and could win the competition.
