The next Strategy Challenge will take place from Wednesday November 11th till Friday November 13th, 2020. During this three-day business course, you and 23 other selected top students will dive into a challenging real life case supported by Kearney consultants.
During Kearney’s Strategy Challenge everything is arranged to ensure a fully catered experience. You will get to know Kearney’s people, our vision and the day-to-day work of a strategy consultant. Together with the other participant you will be immersed in the company atmosphere through lunches, dinners and fantastic evening programs. We look forward to meeting you!
As a strategy consultant you help businesses, organizations and governments to make essential strategic decisions: decisions with impact! You will experience the work of a strategy consultant by solving a challenging case for our new partner African Parks. During the three-day challenge you and your team will aim to investigate ‘the question behind the question’, you will define the problem and develop a direction to solve the case. To solve the case, you will be coached by experienced Kearney consultants. The highlight will be the presentation of your team’s solution to our consultants and the COO of African Parks.
