Congratulations to our Bissett case club team for their incredible win in the CPA Business Challenge Case Competition this past March. Competing teams were from universities across the province including the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, University of Lethbridge, MacEwan University, SAIT, NAIT and Athabasca University.
The winning team, comprised of Bissett students Mia Bains, Lyra Mae Cosare, Lucas Mardones and Katherine Martens, won the first place cash prize of $10,000 which is wholly sponsored by the Chartered Professional Accountants Education Foundation (CPAEF).
The judges’s comments referenced the winning teams “ability to organize and articulate their analysis in a poised, confident and competent manner.”
The second Bissett team of Shane Cuckow, Dea Devolli, Mishal Ira Ordonez and Jan Santiago also showed well with a strong presentation, narrowly missing qualifying for the final presentation round.
The success of our students is not only indicative of their talent and hard work but also of the accounting program and mentor-ship of our dedicated professors, that continues to produce students of high caliber.
A special thanks to the faculty for their continued support and guidance to the teams through the Accounting Case Club. They include Nicole Edge, Assistant Professor, Accounting and Finance; Rafik Kurji, Associate Professor, Accounting and Finance, and Simon Magennis, Associate Professor, Accounting and Finance.
Thanks to all and congratulations!
