Exeter UK

Calling all 2nd year, 3rd Year Economics students, Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics (Honours) students and Communication and Arts students. Borderless is going to a new level!

We’re excited to announce a new 4-day hackathon (29 September - 3 October) sponsored by Deloitte Access Economics and in partnership with University of Exeter.

Here is your chance to solve a real-world economic challenge presented by Deloitte – putting your theoretical knowledge to practical use and design solutions that could have lasting impacts. You’ll have to focus on being innovative, a problem-solver, a team player, and an economist in action.

And the reward? Deloitte Access Economics will meet with students throughout the competition weekend, and the winners will be invited to an exclusive Lunch and Learn at the Deloitte Offices in Brisbane.

Think about it: meeting Deloitte representatives to gain first-hand industry insights.

Don't just study economics, experience it!
