In Zurich on 22 June 2011, a team of students from the Master’s degree programme in Business Process Management at the University of Liechtenstein won the Swiss regional finals in the Accenture Campus Challenge 2011 – a competition for students of technology and business economics in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

On 7 and 8 July 2011, the group will go head-to-head with the finalists from Germany and Austria at the Accenture headquarters for German-speaking countries in Kronberg near Frankfurt.

Fresh, innovative ideas

With the Accenture Campus Challenge, the globally operating management consultancy, technology and outsourcing service supplier has set up a competition where students from universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland can stretch themselves by tackling the daily challenges coming from customers. In teams, students of technology and business economics degree programmes find innovative ideas and options to implement. The high quality of the work by the students from Liechtenstein on the business administration topic “Development of a cross-company sustainability programme” now leads the group from the Vaduz campus into the international final.


Degree programme with an international reputation

“The victory in the Swiss regional finals is a further indication of the excellence of the courses and the students in our internationally-oriented degree programme,” says a delighted Bernd Schenk, Executive Director of the Master’s degree programme in Business Process Management at the Institute of Information Systems. “Our congratulations go to all five teams from the University of Liechtenstein, who performed brilliantly, making this success possible,” continues Schenk.

To conclude, as Academic Director of the degree programme and Head of the Institute of Information Systems, Prof. Dr. Jan vom Brocke, Hilti Chair of Business Process Management at the University of Liechtenstein, emphasizes one aspect in particular: “The employment rate of our students is almost 100%.”
