About the competition

The award winning Deloitte Difference University Challenge offers students from all years and all disciplines the opportunity to take part in a unique series of challenges on campus. This is a two stage, team based competition requiring teams to devise solutions to a number of case studies covering all aspects of our business.

This challenge will not only encourage you to use your creative thinking abilities, but will also help you better understand the diverse and rewarding career paths available at Deloitte!

Get a team together or come on your own and we will put you in a team.

Students will be selected to participate based on a number of criteria including course discipline.

For further information please review the terms and conditions of the competition.

Stage 1 - University Challenge

The first stage of DDUC will take place on campus in UL, DCU, UCD, UCC, NUIG and TCD in January 2019.

The winning team at our six university events will walk away with a cash prize on the night and the chance to compete at our national final!

Last year, we had an overwhelming response in each college where teams really got into the challenges making the judge’s decision very difficult! All teams will also receive information on the diverse graduate careers available at Deloitte from Analytics to Forensics, Tax to Digital and more.

Stage 2 - National Final

The winning teams from each campus challenge will go on to compete in the national finals case challenge in our world-class learning facility, the Deloitte Academy in Dublin.
