Students! Take on our IT Challenge
Standard Bank Team
Super Contributor

Are you and your friends IT wizards? Do you have what it takes to try your hand at Standard Bank’s annual IT Challenge?

Every year we run the Standard Bank IT Challenge for students in South African varsities. This year’s challenge kicks off with heats on 13 March at several campuses around South Africa. The finals will take place at our head office in Johannesburg on 15 April 2010.

We use the latest technologies to develop and maintain systems that support Standard Bank Group’s (SBG) global business. So do you have what it takes?

If you are gifted in the problem-solving department and work well in a team, then the IT Challenge is tailor made for you. Who knows, your team might be crowned the IT boffins for 2010.

Working in a team of four, students will need to tackle a series of hypothetical problems within four hours, this time will be extended to six hours during the finals.

It is tough going. So tough that over the years no team has ever completed all the questions correctly within the allotted time. So be prepared for a challenge, it’s going to be intense.
