Introduction

About the Hackathon

The Management Consulting Hackathon is a competition for senior students (at least 3rd year of studies) and recent graduates, where they work in teams of four to come up with solutions to real business cases for real clients. The solutions are then presented to a jury panel of industry experts who evaluate them based on objective criteria and select the prize winners.

Few days before the competition all participants will receive preparation materials so that they are well equipped for the Hackathon. The Hackathon will be kicked off with an induction session, where the participants will be introduced to their teams, the respective case study their team will have to solve, as well as some hints and tricks as to how to approach and crack the case. Over the course of the weekend, there will be a variety of workshops and mentors to guide the teams, as they develop their solutions for the final judging round on Sunday afternoon.
