KPMG hosts 2nd Ace the Case contest.
DUBAI - "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world," accoring to Nelson Mandela.
Recently, KPMG in the UAE hosted the second edition of the National Ace the Case Competition at the Al Bustan Rotana Hotel in Dubai.
Team Freaks and Geeks from SP Jain School of Global Management have won the competition. They displayed outstanding analytical and presentation skills which set them apart from the rest of the competing teams. The UAE firm will go on to sponsor the team's participation at the KPMG International Case Competition to be held in Madrid, Spain, in April.
Ace the Case is a two-day case competition consisting of a master class in business case analysis and presentation skills. The workshops held on day one were designed to equip students with the necessary tools to solve, structure and present their analysis and recommendations. On day two, finalists transferred their learning to a live case under a tight deadline of three hours and presented their findings to a judging panel who posed as real life clients.
Gratitude goes out to co-facilitators Matthew Zinkus for his excellent master class in business analysis, as well as Joanna Van De Vyvere and Robin Paul for their support in the delivery of presentation skills. The same goes to partners and directors, who took the day off to act as clients. Van De Vyvere was joined in the judging panel by Ian Gomes, Prathap Katharikuppam, Andrew Robinson, Jaison George, Rohit Rajvanshi, Neeraj Dassani and Fawzi Abu Rass.
This year 100 applications were received for Ace the Case. Top students from the SP Jain School of Global Management, American University of Sharjah, Dubai Men's College and Middlesex University Dubai were chosen from each of these universities.
More details and pictures will follow in the firm's monthly newsletter.
