solveit17 700 2


Take a break and solve something unusual. That’s what we at McKinsey do every day, and we’ll be glad if you join us - first for a day, and then maybe for much longer.

Be one of the students daring to deal with a social business problem and then, as it gets more challenging, try to provide real solutions to a non-profit organization. 

Two cases, two rounds – but only one winning team.

What it is

  • A two-round competition for talented Czech and Slovak students in all years of study
  • You and up to 3 friends *

What to look forward to

  • Have fun with other talented students and McKinsey consultants
  • Experience McKinsey and its friendly culture
  • Practice teamwork within time constraint
  • Learn to efficiently work and interact with others
  • Break down and structure complex problems
  • Synthesize and communicate results

How it works

  • In Round 1 on October 16 registered teams will receive a problem to solve
  • Teams will have several days to analyze the problem, develop a solution, and design and submit their output
  • The output in English can be submitted in any form (e.g., video, document, presentation) by October 22
  • 4-5 teams will be shortlisted for Round 2, which will take place in our Prague office on November 2 - 3
  • The best team will win return flight tickets to a destination of their choice**
