Go Green in the City is an international case challenge in which business and engineering students develop ideas for intelligent energy management. We encourage talented students from around the globe to enter the competition for a chance to win career-advancement opportunities and a trip around the world.
The top 100 teams will advance in the competition with a mentor from Schneider Electric – an opportunity to network and improve their ideas.
We will fly the top 25 teams (50 students) to Paris to compete in the Go Green in the City final. Each of the 50 finalists will also get an interview for our internship program and – if a finalist really has what it takes to be a Schneider Electric employee – even a job offer!
The two winners will win a trip around the world and job offers at Schneider Electric!
