Accounting Students Participate in Deloitte Case Competition by Kelly Cuene

Wisconsin School of Business undergraduates in accounting competed Friday, Nov. 19 in the Deloitte LLP Case Competition. Teams of students presented their research and analysis of Deloitte Trueblood Cases to a panel of judges comprised of Deloitte partners Kevin Ringel and P.J. Distefano, as well as Professor Larry Rittenberg.

Four teams, 22 undergraduate students in all, were advised by a Deloitte professional and a faculty member. The winning team can look forward to a trip to Scottsdale, Ariz., in April 2011 to represent Wisconsin in the national competition. Winning team members were Wenkai Bi, Marie Challou, Yanhua Chen, Michael Eggert, Peter Hoeschele, and Linjia Huang.

This is the seventh year that the Arthur Andersen Center for Financial Reporting and Control has partnered with Deloitte on this program. It is a valuable opportunity for accounting students to get the chance to work on live accounting issues with real-world accounting professionals. Kristen Fuhremann, Anita Kroll, and Associate Professor Brian Mayhew helped make this case competition a success by volunteering their time and expertise to advise the student teams. Rittenberg contributed by serving as a judge for the competition.

The following Deloitte case teams participated:

Team #1 (Advised by Jodi Bluske and Kristen Fuhremann) Nengjing Fu Mike Gulden Yanzhu Huang Eric Kurutz Jennifer Murdy

Team #2 (Advised by Kyle Bab and Brian Mayhew) Lauren Francis Sheng Gu Courtney Murray Mike Preston Rachel Treinen Jingwan Wang
