2021.06.30. - 2023.06.29.

What is the aim of Ulysses

'Ulysses Contest – Digital Student Competition on Family Business', a.k.a. Ulysses aims at making sure that university students get to know the special circumstances and challenges of running a family firm. At the same time, the contest is designed to improve the problem solving skills of students, while developing their digital competences.

University student teams are looking into the real-life problems of Austrian, Italian and Hungarian family firms, finding possible solutions to the challenges, while deepening the knowledge students acquired during their university studies.

What results do we expect from Ulysses?

  • The Case study collection methodology (1) determines how good practices for family firm competitions should be collected in the most effective way.
  • Based on this, the Family firms case study compilation (2) collects good practices for family firm case studies.
  • The Student case study competition & Roadmap formation (3) estabilshes a completely new competition tailored to the needs of the target audience. The competition is internationally open for HEI students.
