KPMG International Case Competition 

Your thinking could take you further than you imagined.
KPMG International Case Competition

To Madrid, for example

Are you ready for a case competition challenge of international scale? This could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for…


KPMG International Case Competition is a unique project, which gives you and your three teammates a chance to work on real-world business problems. The cases will mirror the business challenges our KPMG Audit, Tax and Advisory teams handle every day. We’ll test your ability to evaluate real problems and develop workable solutions. This is a great way to practice thinking outside the box and prove you’re ready to embark on a successful career.


KICC is also an opportunity to network with your peers from around the world. If you win your national level of competition, you will travel on an all-expenses-paid trip to compete in the International finals in Madrid. You will have the chance to deal with students from different countries, solving business cases, and experience an unforgettable adventure.
