Audit Innovation Campus Challenge 

The Audit Innovation Campus Challenge provides students with an opportunity to leverage their skills and experience through practical application by responding to an innovative audit challenge statement.

This isn’t the usual student case competition.

It’s innovative. It’s real world. It’s the future of audit.

Deloitte is defining the future of audit. We believe an audit is more than an obligation for our clients. It’s an opportunity to see further and deeper into their business. Our commitment to transforming the audit using innovative solutions is continuously evolving the way we execute audit services. By harnessing these capabilities, we are elevating quality, providing insights, and delivering a differentiated audit.

Deloitte’s breakthrough technology applications, from analytics to artificial intelligence, are redefining the way an audit is conducted. We are constantly striving not only to implement the newest capabilities, but to anticipate and help shape the next generation of innovative solutions. With the Audit Innovation Campus Challenge, Deloitte is helping to close the audit innovation skills gap and helping to prepare the next generation of auditors by engaging students in real world experiences.

Challenge overview

The Audit Innovation Campus Challenge (AICC) is a nationally-driven program hosted by Deloitte’s Audit Innovation group and the Deloitte Foundation, which accelerates innovation in education by helping institutions of higher learning keep pace with the rapidly changing marketplace and evolving technologies. The program will engage students and faculty from campuses across the country, providing an educational experience designed to help students develop skills for success in professional services and sharing the culture of Innovation at Deloitte with academia and potential future employees. 

The school teams (one team per school) will have five weeks to respond to a challenge statement, which is released in the fall. Each school will have a team of six students, plus a Lead Recruiting Partner, Innovation Subject Matter Leader (SML), and Faculty Advisor to support the teams as they work towards developing a response, which they will present to a panel of two Deloitte judges at various regional hub events across the country. The regional hub events will take place in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis on November 21st & 22nd, 2019. Two finalists from reach of the regional events (12) will advance to the 2020 national Audit Innovation Campus Challenge on April 3rd & 4th, 2020 at Deloitte University.
