Students Ben Grozier, Alex Hepp, Chris Liquin and Lindsey
Morrow won the Midwest regional round of KPMG’s Global Case Study Competition
and will advance to the national competition in New York, NY on February 4,
2011. The competition reflects the audit, tax and advisory firm’s commitment to
help educate students by bringing the profession to the classroom.

ILLINOIS is among 18 other colleges and universities from
across the country to participate in the regional case competitions. In the
Midwest regional round, the ILLINOIS College of Business team competed against
the University of Wisconsin and Notre Dame in the KPMG Chicago office. Each
team, comprised of four students, were given 3 hours to form observations and
recommendations on a business case study based on a real life company.  The teams presented their findings to a panel
of judges, including KPMG Partners from various practices in the Firm and the
Campus Recruiting Director. 

In the upcoming national competition, Ben, Alex, Chris, and
Lindsey will compete against teams from five other colleges in the country
including ones from the University of Texas and the University of Washington. The
national winner will travel to Istanbul, Turkey for the final three-day global
competition in April 2011 to compete against the winning teams from over a
dozen countries. 

Go Illini!
