Are you part of the next generation of women in Strategy and Transactions?

The EY NextGen Women competition will take place on the 9 September 2022 and will be held at EY’s office in Helsinki. During the day you will be challenged to think critically in co-operation with other students, where you will get a chance to solve a complex Strategy and Transactions case, present your solution to a jury, and network with EY professionals and fellow participants. The day will end with an award ceremony and the winner is invited to attend the global final to represent Finland. The finalists will work together to solve a case study culminating in the selection of the EY NextGen Women global winner. 


By participating in the Finnish competition, you can win the following prizes:

  • 1st place: The winner of the EY NextGen Women competition in Finland will participate in the global NextGen Women final and will get a chance to compete for winning the global competition.
