YOUniversity Deal Challenge

Duff & Phelps' YOUniversity Deal Challenge engages teams of business students from around the world to hone a broad range of skills, including mergers and acquisitions advisory, transaction opinions, disputes and investigations and valuation advisory.

The YOUniversity Deal Challenge encourages students to team up with their like-minded peers in hopes of being rewarded for their potential as future leaders in the finance field. For some participants, it has opened a door into the business world via an internship and later a full-time job with the company. Even better, all finalist teams receive thousands of dollars in scholarships. Working in teams, participants apply technical reasoning and critical thinking through key stages of the deal-making process. Together, they put those skills to work as they solve a complex transaction related to a key stage in business deal-making. If selected as finalists, teams present their solution to Duff & Phelps experts and nationally recognized professors.

The 2019 YOUniversity Deal Challenge will be our most internationally-focused event yet. This year’s event will feature finals events in New York, London, Mumbai and Hong Kong to encourage more participation from teams all over the world!

Registration will begin in early September 2018 and will continue through October 12, 2018 for the Americas and through October 26th for all other regions.
