CaseLab@CBS - Knowledge for impact

As managers, we cannot always rely on the insights and knowledge of others; sometimes it must be our own knowledge and insights that we use. The Case Lab is a place, where we create our own knowledge – knowledge for impact.

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 16:30 to 18:30


Members of the public and CBS community are cordially invited to

CaseLab@CBS 2.0 – Knight Capital

This event is sponsored by the CBS Competitiveness Platform
Our second CaseLab event will focus on Knight Capital, a specialist in high-frequency, algorithmic trading, which was once one of the largest players in the world in that business. But on August 1, 2012 they had a serious computer problem that cost them a lot. To quote the case: “the company… [showed] the world how to lose $172,222 per second for 45 minutes" (which totals more than $450 million USD).
We promise you an interesting and highly participative experience that will call on you to offer your insights into a challenge facing a Danish business right now. After a highly interactive case discussion, specialists on this topic will weigh in with their thoughts. Something you learn at this event might just save your company someday.
The event will be followed by the networking reception hosted by the CBS Competitiveness Platform.
The event is free but registration is required. Sign up by sending an email marked 'CaseLab@CBS' to no later than August 29, 2014.
Time: September 8, 2014; 16.30 – 18.30
Place: CBS, Råvarebygningen, 1.20; Porcelænshaven 22, 2000 Frederiksberg
