How will you be guided? 

You will be closely coached by:

  • At least 2 students enrolled in 2 different home institutions
  • At least 2 students being in 2 different countries at the time of the challenge

We will make sure your teammates are sufficiently like you as to get along and sufficiently different as to be complementary.



We had the chance to work in multicultural teams, develop new analytical and quantitative skills and learn by doing. It has been an extraordinarily valuable experience that crowned the end of my studies.

Having the opportunity to work with such rich data from a real company like Solvay was unique. It gave me the opportunity to put skills I’d learned in some of my classes into practice.

Lavinia Rubinacci, SBS-EM

Participating in the QDC was definitely the best way to wrap up my QTEM journey! An interesting challenge which allowed me to learn more while consolidating previous knowledge - and it allowed me to meet two very talented colleagues.
