ACG CUp, competition,

Sponsored by the Association for Corporate 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.
  • The FINAL ROUND is a competition of the winning team from each of the participating schools, held in Richmond, VA, will be scheduled for the 3rd or 4th week of February 2018 at Williams Mullen.

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.
