Rollins MBA Students Place 2nd in ACG Cup Regionals

March 30, 2012 - A team of Rollins Professional MBA students took home second prize in the regional finals of the ACG Cup held at the Tampa University Club on March 27. The annual competition is sponsored by the Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG®), a global community for middle-market M&A dealmakers and business leaders focused on driving growth. A team from University of Florida won first place.

Rollins MBA team-members Jenny Brown, Scott Brown, Marina Isaeva, Jarvis Hall and Jack Ventimiglia competed against eight other Rollins MBA teams last month to earn the chance to compete at the regional level.

“The ACG Cup competition exposed all of the participating students to topics, issues and cases that are not typically part of our core curriculum,” said Rollins MBA Associate Professor of Management, Ronald F. Piccolo, Ph.D. “The competition also gave our students the opportunity to showcase their skills to dozens of local professionals and potential employers.”

The ACG Cup is a unique case study competition designed to give MBA students real-world experience and insights into mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, financial advisory service, and private equity placement. Each case study gives student consulting team the chance to present valuations, capital market structures, and strategic advice to a panel of seasoned M&A professionals within the ACG community.
