2017 Harvard International Consulting Competition (HICC)






We are excited to announce the 2017 Harvard International Consulting Competition (HICC), hosted by HCCG and Shiseido.

Important Application Information

Please note that this year we will be pre-selecting students for the competition due to high levels of interest. If you do not submit all of the application materials by the relevant deadline, you will not be considered for the competition.

Steps for application are as follows:

  1. Form a team of 4-6 current undergraduate students. 
  2. Purchase tickets individually on the Eventbrite page.
  3. Have each team member submit their resumé to competition@harvardconsulting.org.
  4. Your application will be considered complete when your team submits this form explaining your approach to the application case question, available here. All materials, including this case assignment, must be submitted by April 5, 2017 at 11:59 pm for consideration. We will send an email reminder to all teams who have completed the first three registration steps. 

You will receive a decision about whether your team has been selected to participate in the competition on April 9, 2017. For students with urgent time pressure (e.g. international or long-distance travel), plese send us an email at competition@harvardconsulting.org so we can accelerate our review process.

Please note, there will be no refunds on event tickets purchased provided you are selected to attend the competition. If you and your team are not selected to attend, we will refund the ticket cost (minus handling fees) within 4 weeks of decision notification.
