PwC Case Competition

PwC is hosting their annual Challenge Case Competition this year at the University of Illinois, and would love for you to participate!

Challenge is an opportunity for all underclassmen students to experience real-world decision making and teaming early on in their academic careers, while also gaining exposure to business professionals and leaders in the marketplace. Through this experience, student participants will build relationships with their peers, along with PwC professionals across all staff levels.

Student participants will:

  • Work in teams to solve real-world, relevant problems facing today’s business world

  • Receive real time feedback from business professionals

  • Improve overall professionalism, through honing their communication and presentation skills
