Scattered throughout Australia right now are more than 100,000 of our future business leaders.
The Institute saw a need for an important target audience with undergraduate, accounting, business and finance students, to help them learn from, and connect to the accounting profession.
In this day and age, running a business is not just about the bottom line.
The Institute commissioned market research which showed that we had the opportunity to help students develop their practical skills.
The Student Challenge enables young, aspiring Australians to gain real-life experience of the dynamic work undertaken by Chartered Accountants around the globe on a daily basis.
