L’Oréal Brandstorm 2018: What to expect

Cameroon will be locking heads with Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mauritius and Senegal to vie for the ultimate innovation competition organized by one of the world’s top cosmetic/beauty brands.

L’Oréal Brandstorm is an international business competition which aims at offering students a pedagogical and professional experience and the opportunity to work as a brand leader for a L’Oréal brand. The competition also gives teams of three students the chance to tackle a real business case and innovate new ideas for some of L’Oréal’s 24 international brands.

In the last 25 years, the competition has attracted over 95,000 students from over 360 universities in 58 different countries to turn Brandstorm into a real innovation catalyst. In 2017, students were challenged to share their ideas on how to “disrupt men’s grooming with life changing innovation.”
