The 2018 Global Peter Drucker Challenge is now open to iSchools students and alumni. The Drucker Challenge is a personal essay contest, typically infused with an analytical strain, for students and young professionals (18 through 35 years old) on a current topic in management. This year’s theme is: “how to stay human in a robot society.” Cash prizes and travel funding are given for winning entries.
In recent years, the Drucker Challenge team has seen increasingly more winners (places 1-3) and finalists (places 4-10) in both the student and professional categories who are students in or alumni of information-focused university programs. Once again, the Challenge team invites iSchools students and alumni to write and submit.
This year’s submission deadline is Sunday, 24 June at 16:00 CET (4:00 PM Vienna time); note that this is earlier than past deadlines. Successful Challenge essays are often comparable to a great long-form journalistic piece, telling a story while making a point.
