Featured Competitions

KPMG International Case Competition (KICC)


A four-day event where you and three other teammates are presented with a series of challenging, real-world business case studies to solve, mirroring the work that companies like KPMG and other consultancies do.



The KICC will take place in April 2018. Applications can only be made once you have formed your team of 4, and are made here.


During each stage of the competition, your team will be given a detailed case study to consider. You will have three hours to:

  • Review the dossier you’ve been given
  • Identify and analyze 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.


  • Meet people from other cultures and make global connections
  • Test yourself and increase your confidence
  • Get real-world experience and build your business skills
  • Add a differentiator to your resume
