SYNDICATE is a business case study competition organized by AIESEC in the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, in partnership with the Imperial College of Business Studies (ICBS). Our aim is to provide Youth, an opportunity to develop their innovativeness, problem-solving skills, and knowledge in terms of Business Management, through the analysis of real-world corporate situations.

SYNDICATE is an open competition for both Students and Undergraduates, who are interested in jumpstarting their professional careers with an amazing learning experience while competing to stand a chance to win a CASH PRIZE of 50000 LKR and valuable SCHOLARSHIPS from ICBS. Also, the participants will receive a valuable e-certificate.
The main highlight for this competition is the knowledgeable and informative workshops conducted prior to the competition, exclusively for the participants by renowned experts in the business field. Here the contestants will be given a foundation knowledge on areas that could be questioned, how to tackle real-world business issues and how to develop their initial idea into a more suitable, practical, and feasible solution.
