Kearney Strategy Challenge

to 17-11-2023

The Kearney Strategy Challenge is our number one recruitment event and your chance to experience life as a strategy consultant at Kearney.

During this three-day business course, you and the other selected top students will dive into a challenging real-life case, with the support of Kearney consultants.

The event

During Kearney’s Strategy Challenge everything is arranged to ensure a fully immersive event. You will get to know Kearney’s people, our vision, and the day-to-day work of a strategy consultant. Together with the other participants you will have the chance to experience Kearney first-hand through lunches, dinners, and fantastic evening programs. We look forward to meeting you!

The case

As a strategy consultant, you help businesses, organizations, and governments make essential strategic decisions: decisions with impact. You will get a taste of the work of a strategy consultant by solving a challenging case for our partner EAT. They work for a future where healthy & sustainable food is affordable, accessible and attractive to all.

During the three-day challenge you and your team will aim to investigate “the question behind the question,” define the problem, and develop a direction for solving the case. To solve the case, you’ll be coached by experienced Kearney consultants. The highlight will be the presentation of your team’s solution to our consultants and representatives of EAT.
