UCE Business Case Competition Students Pitching

Want to supercharge your CV and stand out from the rest? Get a leg up with a Business Case Competition.

Do you love coming up with strategic solutions to business problems? Sign up now for the UCE Deloitte Business Case Competition.

The UCE Deloitte Business Case Competition is a great way to hone your skills. It is one of the best ways to kick-start a career in consulting and professional services.

Some of the world’s brightest students (people like you) are taking part in Business Case Competitions all over the world. Case Competitions develop and test your skills as an innovative, creative and critical thinker.

What happens?

Once per term we host a workshop/competition day. Being part of the competition gives you access to coaching and mentoring throughout the year.

At each workshop/competition day you will:

  • Develop your skills - The morning workshop is an opportunity to meet your team and hone your skills.

  • Analyse the case - In the afternoon the team receives a 'case' - often developed around a real-world company.

  • Prepare a strategy - As a team, you have 1 hour to pull the case apart. You develop an innovative, creative and workable strategy for the company to put in place.

  • Pitch your concept - At the end of the hour, you present your strategy to a panel of judges and sometimes a representative of the company! 

Top performers at UC competitions are selected to travel to national and international case competitions - a perfect opportunity to prove yourself and grow your professional networks. Several past competitors have received job offers as a direct result of attending these national competitions.

Set yourself apart from the crowd by being part of this professional development opportunity! Sign up now and you will be able to attend workshops run by professionals from Deloitte and compete against other teams at UC. The next contest is on the 14th of March.
