[PAST EVENT] 6th Annual Richmond ACG Cup: Final Round

February 21, 2017
All day
Richmond, VA

Sponsored by the Association for Sorporate Growth, Richmond, VA Chapter, this competition is designed to give students from the Commonwealth?s leading MBA programs invaluable insight into mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, private equity and corporate financial advisory. The Richmond ACG Cup pulls teams from: W&M, University of Richmond, UVA, VCU, and Virginia Tech.

The case study is centered on a fictitious business scenario, where each participating team of MBA students will be acting as if they are an investment banking firm. Each participating team will be required to assess the situation at hand, to analyze the financial data and conduct multiple valuations, develop a strategy which considers a wide range of options and potential solutions, determine recommendations, and formulate a presentation.

The competition consists of two rounds:

  • ROUND 1 is a competition among the teams from the respective schools, held at the school location. This will be held on Thursday, Jan 26th at 3:00pm in Miller Hall.
  • The FINAL ROUND is a competition of the winning team from each of the participating schools, held in Richmond, VA on February 21st, 2017 in an actual Board room setting in Richmond, VA

In each case the Presentation Date will be approximately 10 calendar days after the case study materials are released to the teams. The participating teams will be delivering their presentations to a panel of judges. These judges act as if they are the owners/senior managers of the fictitious company. Ultimately, the judges will be determining which investment banking firm (i.e. team of MBA students) should be hired.
