All aboard for our 2nd fishing expedition!


Fishing for talent

Congratulations to the 2017 winners, Cracker Jacks!

The catch was good for our second fishing expedition for talent. This year, out of the 106 teams that registered, team Cracker Jacks from the African Leadership College made its mark and won the Rs 200,000 cash prize and internship. 

Open to students studying full-time towards a recognised undergraduate degree or professional qualification in Mauritius, and to Mauritians studying abroad, the competition's goal was to discover fresh talent.

#TeamPwC inviting students on a fishing expedition!

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.
