The ICAEW100 competition has closed but you can now pre-register your interest in our next competition.


About the ICAEW 100 competition

ICAEW is searching UK universities to find the brightest 100 students with the potential to be the next generation of business leaders.

Currently, 78 of the FTSE 100 companies have an ICAEW Chartered Accountant on their board – this is because our accountants are recognised for their ability to make recommendations and decisions that impact on the future strategy and performance of the business. Do you have a good blend of professional skills? Are you proficient at multi-tasking and prioritising? If so, the ICAEW 100 competition is for you.

ICAEW is inviting you to test your skills against your peers by taking two short online exercises. Students with the top 100 scores by the time the competition closes at noon on the 3rd April 2018 will be in with a chance of winning exclusive opportunities and prizes.

First prize - a place at the One Young World summit 2018

The student with the highest overall score will win a place at the One Young World summit 2018 being held in The Hague, the Netherlands! The summit brings together the most valuable young talent from around the world with world leaders, who act as the One Young World Counsellors. Previous delegates at the Summit have had the chance to meet Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan and Sir Richard Branson.

As well as this amazing opportunity, there is a range of prizes up for grabs for students who have excelled in certain areas of the exercises.

How to get involved

To be in with a chance of winning this amazing opportunity, you’ll need to complete an online application form and two online exercises. They shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes in total. But be careful: you will only be able to try the exercises once so make sure you have allowed enough time before you start. The overall score of the online exercises will determine who makes it into the ICAEW 100. Once you have completed the online exercises, you’ll receive an email confirming whether your overall score has qualified for one of the 100 places on the leader board. The 100 places will be listed in alphabetical order and NOT ranking order, which means that you’ll need to wait to see if you’re number one when the competition closes in April.
