ACG Cup Northwest has completed our second annual competition of under graduate and graduate finance students from university teams in Oregon and Washington. Each team received the same case study—reflecting real world problems faced by businesses seeking to grow or address critical issues with new finance strategies. Students completed their own research and presented their recommendations, choosing from a broad set of possibilities. Our 2018 Semi-Finals Competition was held at the Portland State University Business School. Student competitors and our judges were exceptional.

Our organization, ACG Cup Northwest, was formed to promote corporate strategic growth and expertise in the Northwest. Participants gained real world business and finance experience and the opportunity to meet and form relationships with members of our finance communities.

The Finals Competition and Awards Ceremony on March 1st, 2018 was held at the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland. Competition was fierce and all of the teams were impressive. In the end, two teams, University of Washington and University of Oregon, tied for second place and Oregon State University took home top honors. Congratulations to our finalist teams and our sincere thanks to the judges, liaisons, volunteers and sponsors who made ACG Cup Northwest such a big success.

"My participation in the Minneapolis ACG Cup competition provided a real world challenge for utilizing the knowledge I had gained through my graduate education along with much greater insights into investment banking. The test cases are created every year based on business scenarios that actual dealmakers encounter and offer a unique business experience. Networking with other students along with business leaders in the community, exercising team building skills, and polishing presentations outweigh any financial award the competition provides. I would highly recommend participation in this unique and beneficial opportunity. I am pleased to now be involved with the committee expanding the ACG Cup opportunity in to the Pacific Northwest."
