KPMG Ideation Challenge
The KPMG Ideation Challenge
Looking to crack complex business issues with data-driven ideas and the power of technology? Now is your chance to fire up your synapses and solve the problems of tomorrow using the power of your business, technology, and data and analytics knowledge.
UCSB is one of 30 schools chosen to participate in KPMG’s Ideation Challenge (KIC)! As one of the universities selected to participate, UCSB students will compete head-to-head against some of the brightest students across the country. This competition has you working in a team to solve real-world problems the professional services industry is facing today. You will need to leverage various skillsets to generate a solution to our challenge prompt and present your solution to a panel of judges.
The competition will start with a local round, followed by a virtual semi-final round and then the top 5 teams in the U.S. will be invited to an in-person final round at KPMG Lakehouse. The winning U.S. team will be invited to our in-person Global Advantage program taking place internationally in June!
To learn more, please feel free to watch this informational video put together by our KIC planning team.
