Since 2010, The Duff & Phelps YOUniversity Deal Challenge engaged students from around the world to hone their financial and presentation skills. With our expansion of services and the renaming of Duff & Phelps as Kroll, we are happy to announce the formation of the Kroll One Team Challenge!

No longer only a financial competition, the bigger and better Kroll One Team Challenge will test students in areas of valuation, investigations, mergers and acquisitions, transaction opinions, restructuring, governance, and risk avoidance.

This is an exciting opportunity for all students who have at least one year remaining to complete their degree. Students will collaborate in teams of two or three to solve a complex, real-world problem a firm might ask Kroll to solve. Participants apply technical reasoning and critical thinking throughout key stages of the process. In the end, students have clarity on the many issues a company can face in the challenging world we live in.

Finalist teams present their solution to a group of Kroll experts and nationally recognized professors. All finalist team members win substantial scholarships. In addition to scholarships, all regional winners will attend the international finals in London for the opportunity to double their scholarship awards and to compete internationally!
