How Cognizant found the next CXO through a Business School Contest.
Cognizant Technology Solution is a leading IT infrastructure and business consulting company. As part of its campus engagement excercise, one of its ideas was to come up with a contest that would test the skills of some B-school graduates on several parameters. The Idea was simple - to promote their brand as well as hand-pick students to interact with their CXO team through a contest.
Mettl embraced this opportunity by creating a highly interactive online contest for Cognizant - view here. The first round of contest was run across 27 business schools and had over 2,300 students participating in it from all over India, Dubai, Manila, and Singapore. Candidates were tested using innovative simulation excercise, puzzles, cases and spreadsheet analysis coupled with psychometric analysis.
