Are you the next EY Corporate Finance Woman of the Year?
Discover how you can kick start your career journey in corporate finance and bring to life your purpose at the same time. This is more than just a global competition – it offers you the chance to:
- Start making long-lasting contacts who will drive your consulting career forward
- Learn about the variety of career experiences in Strategy and Transactions
- Discover how a leading-class professional services organisation adds value through purpose and diversity to our clients
- Win a paid internship in Strategy and Transactions
It’s why we’re supporting the EY Corporate Finance Woman of the Year (EYCFWY) competition in over twenty countries around the world.
The competition is split into three stages. Throughout, we will be looking for evidence of purpose and analytical strength – as well as the practical skills that will distinguish you in the competition.
Application process for 2021
Stage 1 – Application and Regional Final
Firstly, we will challenge you to answer one short answer question on the broader business environment and one question about building a better working world through video.
If your application is successful, you will be invited to participate in the Regional Finals. You will work as part of a team to analyse and present on a transactions case study to our EY judges.
Do well in Stage 1 and you will become a regional winner, rewarded with a paid internship in Strategy and Transactions and a trip to Sydney to compete in the Oceania competition.
In the event that the Oceania Final is unable to proceed face-to-face the format of the competition may need to be adapted to be conducted in a virtual setting. Applicants will receive updated communication closer to the time.
Stage 2 – Oceania Final
In the second stage, you will participate in individual and group activities and continue your journey of learning more about Strategy and Transactions. The Oceania winner will represent EY Oceania at the Global competition.
Stage 3 – Global competition
Taking place in September 2022, the successful Oceania winner will work closely with other finalists from across the world. You will be challenged with individual and group activities in front of EY leaders, clients and academia. At the Global competition, finalists will attend an awards ceremony where the overall Corporate Finance Woman of the Year winner will be announced.*
*In the event that the Global Competition is unable to proceed face-to-face in Europe/ UK then the competition will be conducted in a virtual setting.
The EY Oceania Corporate Finance Woman of the Year competition is open to all female students residing in Australia or New Zealand who hold citizenship or permanent residency in the country they reside in. Entrants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree at university and due to complete their studies between 2022 and 2024.
