The preparations of the 6th Intelligence Hunt project, a company and student competition, are under way.
Intelligence Hunt attracts talented students from universities all over Europe, professional mentors with long and wide industry and service experience and matches them with the Case Companies to work on real business case assignments.
The project lasts three to four months and culminates in the Finals, where the student teams get to present their solutions.
The negotiations with the potential Case Companies are ongoing. The aim is that once the student registration opens, we would have the majority of the companies, and even some cases ready for students to indicate their preferred company cases when filling in the registration application.
