WHAT IS THE ELIGIBILITY FOR PARTICIPATING IN 'SHOWCASE'?

SHOWCASE is open to bonafide students currently pursuing the two-year flagship PGP/MBA program, in select business schools. Students from other streams such as the Part Time Program, Management Development Program, Executive MBA Program, FPM Program and not from the listed schools, are not eligible to participate. This policy is reviewed annually, based on several considerations, and may be modified on a yearly basis.

AM I ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN CASE I GO FOR AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM?

Students, who are on an International Student Exchange program, are eligible to participate in SHOWCASE, but they must ensure that at least three of the four members, will be available on campus to present their work, if their entry is shortlisted for the Grand Finale.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE TEAM SIZE AND COMPOSITION?

Participants are expected to form teams consisting of exactly four members, from within their campus. Teams may be formed by students in the first year, or second year or a mix of both. There are no stipulations on the number of first year or second year students, or on teams of mixed composition of students from both the first and the second years.

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?

There are 3 rounds in the competition. The first round is the Online Round. The case study will be circulated by the Placement Committee of each institute to the students. Students have to send their solutions to showcase@coca-cola.com before 13th September 2017 (10PM IST). Coca-Cola will evaluate all the entries received and select the top 3 entries that will go through to the next round which is the Campus Round.

In the Campus Round, the top 3 teams get the opportunity to present their solution to the case study when Coca-Cola visits their campus. Based on the presentations of the top 3 teams, Coca-Cola will select the Campus Winner – the winning team from the institute that will qualify for the next and final round which is the Grand Finale.

In the Grand Finale, the Campus Winners of each participating institute will get the unique opportunity to present to a special panel comprising of Coca-Cola India's leadership team. From among these teams, the jury will select the National Winner and National Runner-up of Coca-Cola Showcase Season 4.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR 'SHOWCASE'?

There is no formal registration required for participating in SHOWCASE. All 4 members of the teams that send their entries up to the stipulated deadline will be considered registered for Showcase. Students participating in SHOWCASE are required to read, understand and accept the terms and conditions and non-disclosure agreement detailed at http://www.coca-colaindia.com/campus-connect/terms---conditions-and-nda

HOW CAN I SUBMIT MY ENTRY?

For the Online Round, you can send your team's entry to showcase@coca-cola.com by 13th September, 2017 (10PM IST). Please note, that it is the team's responsibility, to ensure that each team member is eligible to take part in the competition. Violation of the eligibility criteria will automatically disqualify a team and bar it from moving ahead in the competition.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE FORMAT FOR UPLOADING THE PRESENTATIONS?

Participating Teams are expected to upload their presentation entries in Microsoft PowerPoint, with due speaker-notes so as to enable the Jury to make full sense of the ideas and strategies presented. The cover slide should clearly mention the team name, name, email address and phone number of all 4 team members. If the entries have a movie component that makes the presentation size too heavy, the movie may be sent separately with a clear comment mentioning the same, so that the judges knows that the movie is to be seen alongside the rest of the presentation. The size of your entry should not exceed 15MB.

WHAT IS THE FORMAT FOR PRESENTING AT THE GRAND FINALE ROUND?

Selected teams will be required to be present in full strength at the Grand Finale Round, if they are invited to present to the Jury, unless their members are on the official International Exchange Program of the Institute, or have taken prior permission to be exempted from this round, due to emergency situations. Shortlisted teams are expected to make a 15-minute presentation, followed by Questions & Answers.

CAN TEAMS REVISE THEIR PRESENTATION BEFORE THE CAMPUS ROUND OR GRAND FINALE (Assuming the team has qualified for the above rounds)?

Coca-Cola permits revision and comprehensive upgrade of the presentations until the original idea continues to be the core pillar of the team’s proposed solution.

WHO IS THE PPI FOR?

PPI for summer internship will be awarded to first year students in the campus winning teams.

PPI for final placements will be awarded to second year students in the National Winner and National Runner Up teams.

HOW WILL THE PRIZE MONEY BE GIVEN?

All prizes are given subject to applicable taxes and in compliance with the prevailing laws and regulations. Any levies, as applicable, shall be solely borne by the respective winner(s) only.
