WHY 360° STRATEGY COMPETITION”?
The pandemic and unprecedented challenges of the past three years have tested CEOs and their leadership teams. In the context of permacrisis, companies need to reinvent themselves, and they need to do it faster than ever before. That’s where the INSEAD x Accenture 360° strategy competition comes in. This competition is all about thinking ahead of the game and re-evaluating business and operating models holistically to create 360° value – Financial Value, Sustainability, Resilience, Inclusion & Diversity, Talent… So, are you ready to tackle a real-world business problem?
ABOUT THE MBA CRACK-THE-CASE STRATEGY COMPETITION
Like a typical consulting Request-for-Proposal process, we – ‘the client’ – will release a problem statement. MBA students are encouraged to form a team of 3 to 4 students and submit a written proposal describing their understanding of the problem, elements of solution, the expected value and the associated transformation roadmap.
The selection will take place in two rounds. The top three proposals will make it to the final round where each team will be coached by industry and functional experts and pitch their solution to a panel of judges on the INSEAD Fontainebleau Campus.
