The School of Accountancy & MIS hosts three student case competitions during
the year - one each quarter. Practice your skills in accounting analysis while competing for scholarship awards!
Awards of $150-500 per student are given to the top ranking teams. You'll present in front of judges who are alumni
and professionals in the accounting practice, including big accounting firms.
The case involves financial accounting problems and analysis and will challenge you to develop problem solving and communication skills. You'll work as a team on a case provided in advance, then deliver a presentation followed by a Q&A session.
The case is centered around big data and data analytics, and will challenge you to use software tools such as Excel function to examine different sets of accounting data, and visualizations for analysis and conclusion. You'll work as a team on a case provided in advance, then deliver a presentation followed by a Q&A session.
The competition will allow you to compete for scholarship awards through an individual paper competition addressing ethical issues arising in the professional practice of accounting. After submissions are reviewed, finalists are selected to present before a panel with a Q&A discussion.
