Solve a problem

All you need to know to apply for the 2019 Case Challenge

 

Here's the challenge. We want you to solve real-life problems related to the functions of Technology and Operations. Once you've registered your teams, you'll receive a case study from us and propose a solution. If you're among the top five winning teams, there will be mentors assigned to help you. Finally, the five teams will gather to present their solutions to our senior leaders. The top three teams will walk away with attractive prizes, including an invitation to interview for our 2020 Summer Internship Program1
