Team Prodeko consisted of three fifth year students and one fourth year student

The local qualifications were held at Aalto University TUAS already in November 2017 and one team from four great candidates continued on to Semi finals in Stockholm in January 2018. The fantastic four tackled 2 cases in Stockholm and won their way to the finals in Vienna. The team was coached by multiple consulting companies along the way and travelled filled with excitement to Vienna in March to take on the other finalists from 6 other ESTIEM local groups.

The finals included three cases within four days along with other festive activities. Team Prodeko placed 2nd, 1st and 1st in the cases winning thus the entire this year’s TIMES case competition. Gothenburg and Darmstadt were placed just after LG Helsinki. Last time the victory came to Finland in 2014 and to Aalto in 2009.
