Business Administration Division Students Advance to Top Ten Teams in US Accounting Competition

Students' fraud-hunting skills take them to the neStudents work together to place in top ten in national accounting contestxt level

A group of four of students from professor Carolyn Galantine's auditing class has earned their way to the top ten (of 214 teams) in the 2011 American Institute of CPA's accounting competition!

"The 2011 AICPA Accounting Competition asks college students to flex their fraud and forensic skills in advising a client on a major overseas expansion. The top three teams strut their stuff in Washington DC, and the one that does the best job keeping the project on track—and on the right side of the law—gets a very legal $10,000."

The next stage of the competition will require the students to produce a video which will be posted on the competition's website. Public voting on the videos begins on November 14th. The top three groups will travel to Washington DC to give a live ten-minute presentation in front of the judges. GO CCB Waves!
