This year saw over 6,000 highly talented students from more than 300 universities across 24 countries compete to represent their country at the global final. With so much talent present, winning this year’s competition was no small feat.
The competing teams were asked to consider how an international airline carrier should strategically address the challenges and competition it faces in its home market, as well as across its region. The challenge was to prepare a compelling set of recommendations and an engaging presentation to a panel of KPMG leaders from around the world.
“KPMG is proud to provide this opportunity to students,” said Iain McLaughlin, KPMG’s Global Head of Resourcing. “Seeing these students tackle stimulating, complex, real-world business issues and deliver such compelling and insightful solutions is testament to their talent. We hope we gave them a taste of what working at KPMG is all about.”
KICC, along with KPMG’s Global Internship Program, are key graduate programs focused on helping top talent experience challenging work and scenarios within a global business context. For more information on either of these programs please visit www.kpmg.com/KICC or www.kpmg.com/GIP.
