Organising Team of ICC@M 2022

Sabine Nievelstein

Academic Director of ICC@M

My name is Sabine Nievelstein, lecturer at the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management. In 2022 I will be serving as Academic Director of ICC@M the third time.

Over the years, the annual ICC@M has evolved into an event that brings together teams from the most prestigious universities, forging life-long bonds and generating the most inspiring business solutions. Coming from a teaching position, where my enthusiasm and gregarious nature has always been a great source of energy, I had gladly taken on the challenge of making ICC@M 2019 as successful as it was in previous years. For ICC@M 2020, it was my goal to make it even better than the 2019 edition. Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe we had to take the very hard decision to cancel ICC@M 2020 and ICC@M 2021 was an online edition. After careful consideration it was decided that ICC@M 2022 will be an in-person and on-site competition only. The development of international connections and relationships is incredibly important and it is through in-person and on-site competitions that we believe communication and collaboration skills are developed best. Next to that, because of the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we are still living in a very uncertain time and therefore only invite European Business Schools for the 2022 edition of ICC@M. We are dedicated to delivering the best competition possible and providing competitors the same, or even better, memorable experience as in previous years. I will do my utmost to take ICC@M to the next level!

I will be responsible for the academic support of ICC@M and the team of SCOPE will be working behind-the-scenes on the organizational part of the competition. Together with the help of many other colleagues of SBE, as well as the student representative we aim to make a success of this twelfth edition of ICC@M. I look forward to making this year’s event at the very least inspiring, and unforgettable. Although there is beauty in imperfection, I strive for a smooth organization where all student teams can work on ICC@M’s demanding cases in a relaxed yet professional ambiance, and enjoy true Limburg hospitality during downtime. I’m looking forward to meeting you in Maastricht during ICC@M 2022! May the best team win!
