NextGenFactorTM is a competition that models a real-world business scenario.

Within a two-week period of time, participants are required to work in teams of 4 to 5 max to review a business case which will focus on strategic issues being faced by companies all over the world, including but not limited to financials, tax, risk, governance and technology.

You are expected to develop a solution which will be in the form of a report. If yours is shortlisted, you will then present your solution to a panel of PwC Professionals.

This year, we've reeled in 100 teams! Stay tuned as we progress towards the finals. 

Key info:

Diversity in opinions and skill sets will be key

Bring on board 4-5 super talented, and creative students from various faculties and pull together your A-team. Together, you will review a real-world business scenario focusing on strategic issues facing companies today including, but not limited to, financials, tax, risk, governance and technology. You will be expected to develop a solution in the form of a report. If your project is shortlisted, you will then present it to a panel of PwC professionals.

The competition is open to students studying full-time towards a recognised undergraduate degree or professional qualification in Mauritius, and to Mauritians studying abroad. Team members must not be in employment (full-time or part-time). Finalists studying abroad will be entitled to one point-to-point airfare from their respective locations to Mauritius in economy class.
