About SBB

This is the second edition of the Sustainable Business Battle Leiden – The Hague. Last year, the battle has been initiated by Leiden University Green Office and Minerva and is a collaboration of all MASCQ student associations and several (sustainability) parties from the region. The SBB is unique with its regional approach: Complex global issues shall be made concrete by translating them to an issue from our own region Leiden – The Hague.


What does SBB look like?

The Sustainable Business Battle (SBB) Leiden – The Hague is a 4-week business case challenge in which ten interdisciplinary teams of students from Leiden and The Hague will compete to find the most sustainable, innovative and yet implementable solution on a core-business related topic.

These questions are real challenges that organizations face. In order to solve the case technical knowledge about sustainability is not needed. We are looking for small scale out-of-the-box solutions for large scale problems.

Students will be assigned to interdisciplinary teams consisting of four students. Every team will work on one business case provided by one institution.
