KPMG Ideation Challenge

Unleash your potential

Challenge yourself and stretch your limits. Work in teams and show the world what you can do with the power of data and analytics. The best idea will qualify for the Global Finals in Seoul, 29 March - 3 April 2020.

The KPMG Ideation Challenge is a lifetime experience. Get an idea what life is like as a KPMG consultant and learn about the type of work we do day-in, day-out. Participating is a chance for you to see how best to use your interests and skills in an international company. Collaborate with other students to make an impactful contribution by coming up with an interesting business idea to the following challenge:

How we might utilize advanced analytical and cutting-edge techniques (such as artificial intelligence, statistical and predictive analytics, augmented reality and virtual reality or blockchain) to give our clients back the gift of time?

How it works

Bachelor, Master and PhD students are invited to participate. You must be enrolled at a Swiss university or university of applied sciences up to and including April 2020. Register until 19 November 2019.
