Competition timeline

Attending the Crack the Case Workshop is an invaluable opportunity to gain insights into effective problem-solving techniques. Learn how to dissect and understand complex issues in a structured manner and master the art of communicating your solutions within the confines of a 15-slide format. Benefit from expert guidance on navigating the do's and don'ts of case responses, understanding key success factors and accessing useful resources for research and future competitions.

Workshop details:

  • Thursday 21 March 5:30pm – 7:30pm AEST (with 180 Degrees Consulting at Queensland University of Technology)

Please note that the workshop will only be held in person. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to remote, rural or interstate students. As this event is open to the public, we recommend you register for the workshop to secure your spot.

Students have until Tuesday 2 April at 8am AEST to register for the case competition. You can register as a team or as an individual. If you're registering as an individual, Deloitte will make every effort to group you with other individuals from your state to form a team. For students who register as individuals, Deloitte will communicate team allocations via email.

NSW students can register in teams until Sunday 7 April at 9am AEST via email (CaseCompetitionCE@deloitte.com.au) if they miss the initial deadline. Early registration is recommended, as registering after the case is released shortens the available timeframe for preparing your response.

The Case will be released on this page on Tuesday 2 April 9am AEST.
