Objective: To provide students the opportunity to learn about the type of work technology risk consultants perform through an interactive case competition.
Goals: To identify key IT risks for a mock client, prioritize risks based on impact and risk level, determine and document methods of addressing key risks, and present findings to a panel of EY judges.
Open to: Undergraduate students enrolled in a university located in Ontario, Quebec, or Nova Scotia. Group sign-ups are optional, not mandatory (i.e., individual sign-ups are welcome).
About the Case Competition: Our purpose is to translate uncertainty into confidence so that performance is accelerated. Put your teamwork and problem solving skills to the test in a Technology Risk Case Competition. This case competition is designed to teach you a little bit more about our practice, test your skills and meet our team. In groups of 3-4, you will be asked to come up with a risk-focused solution and present to a panel of EY judges from across the country. The case competition is open to all undergraduate students attending any Eastern/Maritime post-secondary institution. Participants will be contacted with further information about the event closer to the event date. If you have a team, please register individually and request to be paired with one another. If you do not have a team, we can assign you to one.
