We welcome you to the P&G CEO Challenge: A competition which will test your aptitude for business strategy and real-life problem-solving. If you've been eager to demonstrate your ingenuity and intelligence beyond your campus, this is the chance to make an impression on a global scale.
Prepare to compete with teams from around the world to see who is most fit to be the next CEO of P&G. Top students will ascend to the Global Final and win the opportunity to meet P&G CEO David Taylor. First, prepare to showcase your ability to think critically about leading a brand. Best of luck!
The CEO Challenge is designed to test your skills predominantly through real business case study but also design thinking and business simulation depending on how far you reach in the competition. Participating in CEO Challenge does not automatically apply you to a job at P&G or indeed obligate you to apply. However, we highly encourage you to explore our careers website at www.pgcareers.com to discover job opportunities that may match your interests.
The online case study will be presented in English. If you advance to the national stage of the competition some of this may take place in local language however you will be asked to prepare your presentation and present your findings in English. Regional and Global finals will be held fully in English.
