Deadline: Thu January 11, 2018Nov 22, 2017
KPMG’s Ace the Case Program
Ace the Case is a business case competition designed to develop your case writing and presentation skills while giving you the opportunity to build relationships with KPMG professionals early in your career. It provides a great opportunity to interact with our people and learn about the cross-functional opportunities available to you at KPMG.
At the local level, Ace the Case is run in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal with the first day consisting of an interactive workshop followed by a competition on the second day where you will learn how to plan, write, and debrief a business case.
Ace the Case in Vancouver will be hosted on January 26th and 27th 2018.
What’s in it for you?
Hosted by KPMG professionals, you will be trained by industry leaders on case-writing and presentation skills. The knowledge you’ll gain from this workshop will be valuable to you at school, in other business competitions, and later in your professional career. These elements make Ace the Case a once in a lifetime opportunity!
The four winning teams from each local competition will receive an all-expenses paid trip to one of our offices in Canada, where they will represent their city and compete in the National finals, while also given the opportunity to network with KPMG leaders from across the country.
The National finals will be held in March, at either the Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto or Montreal office. All expenses will be covered by KPMG.
