Oliver Wyman Case Competition

Impact Hong Kong 2019


What is Oliver Wyman Impact

  • For the 3rd year running, Oliver Wyman is hosting Oliver Wyman Impact, a business case competition for students who are interested in exploring a career in strategy consulting
  • Unlike traditional case competitions, where you are given information about a real life business situation and asked to provide advice on what should be done,  Oliver Wyman Impact focuses on strategic trends that are directly impacting businesses and society. You would be asked to provide advice on how businesses should respond to such trends

What do you get out of it?

A real challenge:

  • Explore a real life business trend
  • Challenge yourself to fresh thinking in an established industry
  • Work in a team, including opportunity to consult our consultants
  • Compete with your peers

The winning team will receive a guaranteed final round interview opportunity when applying to Oliver Wyman for a consultant / internship position in 2020
