DiverCity Case Competition – Presented by KPMG
February 1 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
DiverCity Case Competition is one of the largest undergraduate diversity-focused business competitions in North America. Hosted at KPMG’s Canadian headquarters in Toronto, this case competition offers students an unparalleled opportunity to solve a live business case related to a local, not-for-profit Toronto LGBTQ+ organization.
To maximize student potential, each competing team will be paired with a corporate mentor to provide feedback on case content, presentation, and thought. We also encourage participants to submit their resumes to the RCPA via emails, which will be compiled into a resume book for the KPMG Talent Attraction Team. On the day of DiverCity, the KPMG Talent Attraction Team will host several breakout sessions to further discuss diversity and inclusion initiatives at their company. The day of the competition will conclude with an awards ceremony and an open-bar networking reception with over 60 corporate representatives. Corporate reps will come from a number of firms including KPMG, Deloitte, McKinsey & Company, Bain, BCG, Scotiabank, BMO, RBC, TD, HSBC, IBM, Telus, and more. This Year’s Prize includes an exclusive lunch with senior KPMG executives for each member of the winning team and $1,500. The runner up prize will be to the amount of $300. In addition, all finalists will have free entry to Reconnect 2019, which is the RCPA’s last pillar event of the school year.
Last year’s case partner was Community One Foundation, and the case brought together issues of marketing, finance, accounting and business strategy, making the case a truly integrative experience. This year’s case partner promises to be just as exciting, and also just as challenging.
Undergraduate students currently enrolled in postsecondary institutions may sign up as a team of 4-5 OR as individuals. We would like to ask members within a competing team to sign up at once and specify the team name and team captain. External students are welcomed to team up with Rotman Commerce students by registering through the external registration link and indicating team names and team captains. Individual registrants who do not specify their team names and team captain will be randomly assigned into teams by the RCPA.
