Deloitte’s purpose is to make an impact that matters. In order to achieve this, we fully depend on the originality of our talents and our ability to leverage their diversities as a catalyst for innovation. At studio 18 we reflect this belief by comprising and embracing different skillsets – empowering 40 students to make their mark in the world.
Therefore, Studio 18 applies to you if you if you are passionate, driven and ambitious! To us, it is not important whether you study engineering, business and IT, data science, economics, business strategy, social science or something completely different.
MOTIVATED BY REAL-LIFE CHALLENGES?
The aim of Studio 18 is that you experience the complexity of consultants’ daily working life. By introducing start-ups, we provide a real-life business, where the scale of the organisation allows you to immerse yourself in the business case, enabling you to create deep and impactful solutions. In addition, introducing start-ups as partner companies naturally leads to greater opportunities for leveraging co-creation – an increasingly important way of working in Deloitte and other large-scale organisations as well.
WHO WE ARE
In Deloitte Consulting we work with large, well-established and often international companies. It is our mission to help businesses solve complex issues and lead business transformation enabled by technology. The life span of our projects varies from just a few weeks to several months, sometimes even years. Through superior coordination, strong teamwork and efficient execution we are able to generate impactful solutions for some of the most complex businesses of today looking to shape the landscape of tomorrow.
The participating start-ups represent different industries and challenges. What they have in common is their innovative approach and unique nature in terms of their product, offerings, value, business model, operational approach and smart solutions. When participating in Studio 18, you will be part of the journey of one start-up, which will give you a unique insight, the opportunity for co-creation and for making a real impact.
We are very proud to present:

…And everything around them
On 21 June, we will welcome you at our headquarters and then take you to Deloitte Studio: our brand-new digital hub where office space and tech showroom come together – an inspiring working environment for your 18 hours of problem solving.
First, you will be divided into teams based on a personality test, Business Chemistry, to be taken upon arrival. Subsequently, consultants will introduce you to the tools that we use in Deloitte Consulting. Then, you will be teamed up with a start-up that matches your unique team profile.
On the second day, your work continues at Deloitte Studio. The teams will be challenged and supported by Deloitte consultants, and you and your team will get creative input and professional feedback during your work.
Upon completion of the 18 hours of teamwork, the teams must present their solutions to the judges in Dragons’ Den.
Following the presentations, we will host a celebratory closing dinner and party to end the experience, giving you the opportunity to network and celebrate with the rest of the groups.
GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR INSPIRATION, DISCUSSIONS AND SUPPORT
At Studio 18, experienced Deloitte consultants, industry experts and the start-up founders will be available as enablers, providing you with tools and perspectives to enhance your problem-solving skills. For example, there will be an expert elevator session, where you share an elevator ride with an expert with whom you can discuss your work. Also, you will be meeting with the start-up founders and get coaching from Deloitte consultants.
Day 1 - 21 June
• Arrival and welcome at Deloitte
• Presentation of framework
• Start-up fair: meet the start-ups
• Division into teams
• Problem solving
Day 2 - 22 June
• The teamwork continues
• Exchange of ideas with start-up founders and Deloitte professionals
• Presentations: at Dragons’ Den
• Closing dinner and party.
The jury comprises five judges (see below) whose first job will be to evaluate and challenge the hard work you have performed during the 18 hours. Further, the jury will assess your ability to clearly pitch and describe your solution.
A start-up representative will challenge the company-specific aspects of your presentation. In addition, one of the judges will be an external lion with extensive prior entrepreneurial and pitch experience. Last but not least, the consulting industry will be represented by three Deloitte partners, with one of them being a subject matter expert with extensive strategic knowledge.
Overall, this constellation of the panel of judges ensures that you are challenged and that great solutions and impact are acknowledged.
Is this just another case competition?
Studio 18 is not a regular case competition. It is based on real-life challenges in real start-ups, where impact and digital solutions are created in a synergetic collaboration between participants, consultants and of course the start-ups. The purpose is to make a crucial difference to the start-up involved.
Do you expect me to deliver a specific product after the 18 hours of problem solving?
It is not required that you deliver a specific product. What we expect from you is that you – together with your team - have done your very best in order to come up with a thoroughly thought out answer to the challenge presented by the start-up you were matched with. Thus, your final product could be anything from a presentation, a website, an app, a new model for how to smarter process and analyse data or a papier mâché model. The sky is the limit!
What else is expected of me?
We expect that you have a positive can-do attitude, a passion as well as an analytical mindset that is used to questioning, challenging and creating.
Who are you looking for?
We are looking for students who want to gain more insight into creating real-life impact and who are not afraid to challenge established practices. It is not important what you have studied, as long as you are goal-oriented, ambitious and want to make an impact that matters.
Is Studio 18 still relevant to me even if I have no programming or deep digital experience or cannot write code?
Yes! Most definitely. This is not only a case for the elite programmers or digital wizards. We select the Studio 18 participants with the ambition of getting diverse profiles with different backgrounds and skills.
I would like to put my programming skills to use at Studio 18. What programming languages can I use?
Great! You can use any programming language.
