All About the QDC in 2 minutes

2022 Spring British RedCross: Vulnerability Survey

What students will do:

  • In the first part, you will follow two online courses to prepare for the Global Group Work.
  • In a second part, you will work in teams of three QTEM students to analyze exclusive data and provide creative solutions and recommendations to real world problems.


Being a QTEM student means you fulfill all prerequisites to participate. You certainly do not need to be an analytical geek to succeed. Team members must have complementary skills (analytics, creativity, leadership, communication, …).

How will you be guided? The coaching

You will be closely coached by:

  • QTEM Alumni (from companies such as McKinsey)
  • Various academic and corporate experts

Your team

You will work in teams of around three QTEM students from different QTEM institutions. Teammates will be designated for you in order to create a complementary team.

Good luck!


The QDC is a unique and very rewarding experience, which enables us to develop both our technical and soft skills! Working in a multicultural team was a strength because it allowed us to have different views and more distance on the subject. The topic of the study - with the aim of helping the British Red Cross - was particularly exciting!

Laetitia Pellegrini, EDHEC

The QTEM Data Challenge was such a complete experience: not only did we get the chance to work and share ideas with people from all over the world with great and different backgrounds, but also to develop our time management and self-improvement skills. The difficulties that arose along the way made the challenge even more worthwhile.

Carolina Oliveira, FEP-U.Porto

Participating in the QTEM Data Challenge is an experience I can only recommend. It has allowed me to improve my analytical skills and apply the knowledge acquired during my studies to a real-life case. I also enjoyed working with two other students from different universities and different backgrounds. 

Ellie Rabarison, HEC Laursanne

I loved the QDC because it gave me the opportunity to work with two international QTEM students on a project I had never seen. Of course, we had some difficult moments, especially in the beginning, but thanks to strong teamwork we managed to overcome all the issues. I realize that reconciling the challenge and studies is very complicated but I can assure you that it is an experience totally worthwhile

Federico Ficorilli, Luiss

Developing a project to help the British Red Cross fight vulnerability was, by far, the most rewarding aspect of participating in the QTEM Data Challenge. The QDC also poses a great opportunity for personal growth, be it because a real-life case motivates oneself to produce the most thorough analysis and relevant policy recommendations, or because working remotely in a multi-cultural team while studying abroad is certain to remove any sort of “comfort zone” out of the equation.

Miguel Maganinho Oliveira, FEP-U.Porto

The GBAC was enriching on a professional and personal level at the same time. It has not only allowed me to further develop my analytical skills using interesting real-world data. It was also a great opportunity to work in an international team towards a common goal.
