CWRU student teams sweep ACG financial competition

For the first time, three student teams from Case Western Reserve University swept the Association for Corporate Growth’s (ACG) annual M&A/Private Equity competition.

The competition involves pitching an investment banking assignment to represent a company in its evaluation of an important strategic dilemma. This year’s case featured an underperforming public company with two disparate divisions. The teams’ solutions were pitched to experts.
