Crowdsourcing is a process of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, and especially from an online community, rather than from traditional employees or suppliers. Challenge Academy applies the concept of crowdsourcing by offering an online platform for practicing skills and knowledge of the collective students population to solve business-related challenges.

Students develop problem-solving, self-directed learning and team skills.
