Every year, the best and brightest young business minds come together in a case study competition to determine which local business school is the head of the class.

The contest is called the ACG Cup, and a scholarship and serious bragging rights are on the line.

In this year’s business case study battle, the enterprising group from American University’s Kogod School of Business was able to overcome all challengers, including the team from George Washington University to take the title.

The American University team members were:

  • Michael Hirschberg
  • Sanjana Banerjee
  • Andrew Boutros
  • Selma Kikic

This year’s contest took place on February 7, 2012 and was hosted by BDO at their corporate offices in Bethesda, Md. The American University team presented their case studies to a panel of distinguished judges, including:

  • Jon Silverman, VP, Corporate Development, Sallie Mae
  • Brian Gieseler, CFO/COO, NAEYC.
  • Tim Hall, Former Director at CapitalSource
  • Jim Sanders, Director, Columbia Group

The American University team will next appear at the ACG National Capital February Monthly Meeting, when the guest speaker will be ManTech’s Bill Varner.
