The CFO Case Study Competition, for which entries close on 31 March, has gained incredible momentum in recent weeks and has received a record number of entries. As of 22 March, 1120 entries (some 280 teams) had been received from 39 universities across 15 countries and two continents. Of these, 75 also signed up as CFO Brand Ambassadors and 52 as CFO Social Media Contestants.
The Competition, which will see entrants tackle the topic of strategic threats, opportunities, weaknesses and ethical dilemmas facing key decision-makers in the mobile telecommunications sector, boasts a R100,000 grand prize, scholarship packages for the runners up, and two smaller cash prizes for the winners of the CFO Brand Ambassador and CFO Social Media awards.
The CFO Case Study Competition also enjoys support from CFO South Africa and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Finals take place during the Finance Indaba Africa. The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) recently also came on board to endorse and support the initiative.
