Our story so far…
In 2015 MYOB launched its first IT Challenge alongside the Management Consulting Club (MCC) at the University of Auckland. This event was a huge success and has led to the Trans-Tasman expansion of the challenge, with students from universities across NZ and Australia competing to be the MYOB IT Challenge Trans-Tasman Winner.
The IT Challenge is a fusion of business and technical analysis – driving real solutions for business problems. Participants compete in groups of 2-4, presenting their solution to a given problem to a panel of judges. This should include the concept of your IT solution as well as financials, marketing and go-to-market strategy that may be involved.
In the preliminary round only a conceptual design is required! Students from all disciplines are can take part!
