The third annual USI High School Business Case Challenge took place in November at the Business and Engineering Center. Students from area high schools competed in teams and individually on challenging, real-world business problems, and were judged on their analysis of the case, solutions and recommendations and more before a judging panel of faculty, students and accounting professionals. The first-place team and their school each received $500, and each of the individual winners received scholarships to Romain College of Business. USI’s Accounting Circle sponsored the event, facilitated by volunteers from its Young Professionals on Romain College's Accounting Circle advisory board.
