Explore your capabilities

During this four-day event, you and the rest of your team will be presented with a series of complex business challenges to solve. This is a platform to showcase agile thinking and prove that you’re ready to embark on a successful career.

The KPMG International Case Competition exemplifies the way the people go above and beyond to address the diverse issues member firms’ clients face every day.

Why participate?

As part of the KPMG International Case Competition, you’ll embark on an exciting journey that will push your potential to the next level.

Gain first-hand experience. Push your potential to the next level. And, of course, win the competition.

When you enter the KPMG International Case Competition, you’re starting an exciting journey: one filled with continuous learning, self-improvement and the opportunity to prove yourself. You’ll get the chance to experience the type of work our member firms undertake, while also receiving valuable coaching from KPMG leaders and industry experts.

During the competition, you will:

  • Gain exposure to KPMG member firms’ leaders and professionals from across our global network
  • Learn from industry experts
  • Acquire a better understanding of KPMG’s culture and what it can offer you
  • Meet people from other cultures and make global connections
    find out how a global organisation like KPMG operates
  • Test yourself and increase your confidence
  • Get real-world experience and build your business skills
    add a differentiator to your resume
  • Have an epic adventure!

Once you’ve proven your abilities and showcased your talent, you’ll have the chance to receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the KPMG International Case Competition final.

The competition

You’ll be challenged and inspired to demonstrate your genuinely agile thinking and have the opportunity to explore the city, enjoy social events and network with peers and industry leaders. You’ll also, of course, have a shot at winning the international championship.

During each stage of the competition, your team will be given a detailed case study to consider – and the rest is up to you.

For each round, you and three teammates will have three hours to:

  • Review the dossier you’ve been given
  • Identify and analyse key business issues
  • Develop a compelling set of recommendations
  • Prepare an engaging presentation for the judges

When you emerge from your team headquarters, you will present your ideas to a panel of experienced KPMG firms’ partners and leaders. The judges will listen to your presentation and ask challenging questions, playing the role of the client.

You will be held to the same standards of excellence that we expect from KPMG professionals. And if you have the innovative and agile thinking our judges are looking for, you’ll advance through the next rounds of competition.
