For the second consecutive year, students from the Weatherhead School of Management dominated the ACG Cup Competition, winning both first and second place.

The ACG Cup, which took place in January, is a unique case study competition designed to give students from leading MBA programs experience and insight into mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, financial advisory and private equity.

This year, Weatherhead School’s cross-discipline teams represented several programs from the school including the MSM-Finance program, part-time MBA, full-time MBA, undergraduate programs and integrated programs.

The winning Weatherhead School teams were:

First Place: Brittany Folino, Julie Foote, Joe Kestner, Karan Patel and Kurt Sardiga.

Second Place: Ben Guisto, Nick Kapernik, Andrew Lease, Alex Romanowski and Adam Zybko.

First place winners receive a cash prize, attendance to a networking event and an all-expenses paid trip to the national ACG conference to be held in Las Vegas in April.

“This is another strong first and second place showing by our exemplary students in this important regional competition,” said Scott Fine, professor of banking and finance who coached the Weatherhead School teams during the ACG Cup. “It was especially rewarding to see so many of Weatherhead School’s programs represented with several teams comprised of members from as many as four programs.”
