PERSONAL IMPLICATION

What costs will I have to incur?

You will not have to incur any costs. For the international final, Accuracy will cover travel and accommodation expenses for the teams.

Is it possible to take part in the competition and attend university at the same time?

It is definitely possible to do both! Taking part in the event is a great opportunity to apply your academic knowledge to a real business case in a competitive but fun environment, and more importantly to get a real peek of what consultancy at Accuracy looks like.

How do I prepare for the competition?

All you need is knowledge of financial analysis and a sound business mind.

RECRUITMENT

Could my participation help a potential recruitment process at Accuracy or at the partner company?

Some students from previous years’ editions entered into the recruitment process at Accuracy following the Accuracy Business Cup. In the meantime, others have been proposed internships at the partner company.


Does a rejection for the Accuracy Business Cup mean that I won’t have a job/internship interview at Accuracy?

We encourage you to apply to Accuracy regardless of the competition and its outcome.
