PAST PARTICIPANT’S TESTIMONIAL
Hear directly from ACG Cup participants across the country.
"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."
