The program aims at attracting and developing new talents within the operation of the company and making young people one of the strongest pillars of the Group. In the last seven years, 10 000 students with 3 500 teams from 250 universities in 70 countries competed within the frames of the program. Many of them are now successful employees of MOL Group all over the world.

The competition consists of three rounds where entrants have to compete in a virtual scenario through the internet by solving industrial and strategic tasks developed by MOL Group. The best 40 teams from the first round have a chance to qualify for the Strategy Simulation round where they face gas station simulation and have to make proper decisions based on careful market analysis. The third round is the live final in Budapest, where the top Steams compete for the main prize. The best three teams win 20,000 Euros (9,000 Euros for the winning team, 7,000 Euros for the second and 4,000 Euros for the third one) and the opportunity to join the graduate recruitment and development program of MOL Group. The performance of the teams is judged by a jury consisting of senior MOL Group managers. This year, Freshhh mostly focuses on refinery, logistics and strategy.
