The Global Case Challenge provides undergraduate students with a realistic preview into the world of strategy consulting, and how we work with our clients to develop strategies that have a real impact.

Every year we partner with one of our clients to ensure the experience is as realistic as it can be, and that global case challenge participants are working on the kinds of business and organizational challenges that our consultants help to solve every day.

We have now completed the Global Case Challenge 2017 and will be opening applications for the 2018 Challenge soon. ​

To register your interest and to be the first to hear about the Global Case Challenge 2018 please fill in this form.

Past Global Case Challenges

Students unleash their inner strategist with the Global Case Challenge.

Past Accenture Strategy Global Case Challenges have attracted students from around the world; Brazil, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and the UK. The students compete in the local challenges in their home country, and then five finalists are selected to attend the final host city for the prestigious 3-day international final. At the final, students work in international teams to tackle a real-world issue for one of our Accenture clients, and are judged by a panel representing Accenture Strategy and the client.

This unique program gives students hands-on experience of how to create impact on a real-life Strategy project of global and social significance. Students have the opportunity to work with our Accenture Strategy consultants and learn about our distinctive work and culture.

Students truly unleashed their inner strategists

Global Case Challenge 2017

Students were asked to solve our Accenture Development Partnership client Médecins Sans Frontières’ real-world problem: ‘How can MSF use technology to mobilize the public to help protect hospitals and health professionals in conflict zones?’

Global Case Challenge 2016

Students were asked to solve our Accenture Development Partnership client Save the Children’s real-world problem: ‘How can we use digital services to help urban women and children in developing countries lead healthier lives?​'
