What are the expenses involved in participating in the competition?

The major expenses are your travelling costs only. There is no registration fee to enter the competition and the competition organizers offer complimentary accommodation for all team members and one faculty advisor for the duration of the competition and associated events. We also offer complimentary airport transfers (both in-bound and out-bound), however other transportation are the responsibility of the teams/universities themselves. Most meals are also provided for the duration of the competition.

Who can participate and how many members are allowed in a team?
All students enrolled in the 2010 calendar year may participate. A minimum of 3 student members from the SAME graduate program is required, whilst 1 member may be ANYONE (either a student from another program or a non-student). In total, a maximum of 5 members are allowed in a team.

The Summary Business Plan is essentially the same as an executive summary, with some restrictions and requirements as per the official rules (please see http://www.bbc.in.th/rules.php).
How many teams can my school send to compete?

According to our rules , "Each graduate program may send ONE team consisting of a minimum of THREE members and a maximum of FIVE members."

These are some examples of separate programs: MBA (full time) and MBA (part time or some schools call it Executive MBA).  MBA (in English) and MBA (in, say, Malay) can also be counted as two separate programs.

Let say that you have officially announced the following separate programs in your brochure and/or on your website:

MBA (full time in English)
MBA (fulll time in Malay)
MBA (part time in English)
MBA (part time in Malay)
MBA in Finance (English) *** (Designed specifically for Finance and totally different from the MBA program where students can choose to major in different fields)
MBA in Finance (Malay)*** (Designed specifically for Finance and totally different from the MBA program where students can choose to major in different fields)
Master of International Marketing (English)
Master of International Marketing (Malay)

In this case, you are eligible to send 8 teams each representing each separate program.
