What happens during a Consulting Challenge?

Eight teams of five students will spend a whole day working on a tender call or a case, with support from the members of the participating consulting firms. At the end of the first round, two finalist teams will have to hone their proposals then pitch them to a jury in a lecture hall.

During the challenge, there will be times for relaxed networking so that you can talk to our students and get to know them better. The participants will be selected by our faculty team, based on the students' strong inclination for consulting and/or their course.
