The Enrichment Academy was formed in 2012 to connect incoming and current College of Business students with the wide array of resources and opportunities available through the ILLINOIS College of Business and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Enrichment Academy students participate in the PwC Enrichment Academy Challenge Competition, which gives students the opportunity to hone in on core problem-solving skill sets, presentation skills, and communications skills, and also provides professional exposure with incoming and full-time PwC Staff. Students will conduct an industry analysis, client interviews, current state assessments, and present final recommendations to a panel of PwC partners and directors.
