The Accuracy Business Cup 2023

For the eighth year running, Accuracy is organising the Accuracy Business Cup (ABC), an international business case competition involving students from top universities across the globe, including France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Canada, India and Morocco. The UK finals of the ABC will take place in early February 2023, with an international final competition in March 2023.

The competition is aimed at challenge-seeking, eager-to-learn students, ideally in their penultimate or final year of studies, and provides an opportunity to gain exposure to a real-life international finance and strategy project. Participating students will have the opportunity to present their cases to the senior management of an international listed company and to be coached by senior Accuracy consultants. Historically, partner companies have included LVMH, L’Oreal, Michelin and Pernod Ricard. In addition, the ABC is a great opportunity for students to stand out from their peers and to get an offer for an internship or full-time position!

To apply to the Accuracy Business Cup, students will be required to enter a team of three and submit their application on https://abc.accuracy.com/apply/ before 31 January 2023.

Global Data Science Competition 2022

Closing the Global Skills Gap

In the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the great resignation, and continued technological disruption, labour markets worldwide are becoming less resilient. Paradoxically, the issue is not so much on the demand side but on the supply side: people have either exited the labour force or are not trained with the right skills to meet rapidly evolving demand. According to one study, the global skills gap could reach 85 million by 2030 – with the world’s 1.3 billion youth between 18 and 24 years being particularly vulnerable to this widening skills gap.

Your team will be tasked by the Secretary General of the United Nations to provide deep data analysis and modelling on the resolution proposed to address this burning issue before a special meeting with the Ministers of Education and Labour from around the World.

Eligibility

  • Those available to join the firm over the coming months or final year students seeking a full time position post graduation.
  • Five teams will be shortlisted to compete and present their findings in January 2023.
  • A maximum of 2-3 Participants per team.
  • Anticipated time commitment: 16 hours.
