From PwC:
The materials will be released after the kick-off event on October 20th. Students will have 1 week to come up with their solution and present to a panel of judges on October 27th. We provide all of the details about the case during the kick-off event, so we ask that at least 1 team member attends this event. We also have a PwC Purdue Recruiting app that students can download which includes all of the dates and times for the kick-off, presentation and awards.   

Program Description:

Today's dynamic business environment requires analytical thinking, fact-based decision making, and collaborative action. You’ll experience it all first hand in Challenge, our campus case competition.

The Challenge case competition models real-world business scenarios focusing on the strategic issues currently being faced by companies all over the world. It is open to all freshmen and sophomores and does not require detailed knowledge of business concepts or accounting.

Within a designated period of time, you will work with a small team of students to review a business case, develop a solution, and create a presentation. Your team will then deliver your solution to a group of PwC professionals. Success is measured by three key criteria: critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. You will come away with valuable insights into our profession, our Firm, and the issues faced by global business leaders.
