The KPMG International Case Competition (KICC) final takes place 10-13 April in Lisbon, Portugal. Student teams from 23 countries* will travel to Lisbon for the experience of a lifetime and the opportunity to be crowned the global champions. The four person teams are made up of top students from universities around the world.
KICC is an annual competition for top students, who are challenged to develop solutions for real-world business cases. Taking place over four days, student teams’ presentations are judged by a panel of senior KPMG Partners, progressing through multiple rounds before the winners are announced on Thursday, 13 April 2017. This year the business cases will focus on fintech and disruption of the financial services industry, and how big data can be turned into actionable business insight.
Rachel Campbell, Global Head of People said, "KICC is an amazing opportunity for students to compete with their peers from around the world in addressing real-world business issues. They receive first hand coaching and feedback from KPMG professionals and get a true sense of what it is like to work as a professional services consultant. Not only is it a great challenge, it is also a great learning experience for all involved. KPMG member firms hired 37,000 graduates in 2016 and this program provides the opportunity for us to give students an experience of what working at KPMG would be like."
