The Top 6 teams of the global edition of The CFO Case Study Competition 2017 (and the Junior National version for South African High Schools) has finally been selected; and stage 2 already looks exciting! Out of the 2300 entries received this year (for both competitions), the Project Board is impressed by the exceptional standards of the six teams that have secured their spot in the 2017 semi-finals. 
The global geographical representation of the Top 6 this year evinces the international and growing stature of The CFO brand; as teams from Asia, Europe and Africa will be going head-to-head at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) this October. They will battle for the right to claim the ultimate award: “The CharterQuest Future CFOs & Global Business Leaders 2017”, and scoop ZAR 100, 000 (ZAR 50,000 for The CFO Junior National version).  
Valentine Nti, the Project Founding Director, had this to say:

“We cannot wait to host the National and Global finals of CFO 2017 in October. Join us to welcome the world to South Africa, and take South Africa to the world; lets benchmark and celebrate fit-for-purpose education; lets re-imagine, innovate and change education.’’

Stage 2 of both competitions is now underway; the teams are compiling their 75-seconds video, and crafting the ultimate millennial social media and viral marketing strategy; to determine who can best execute public engagement, and secure the highest number of public votes (scoring 2 extra credit points) when their videos begin airing on TV and social media from August 1, 2017. 

The teams are being invited on an all-expenses paid trip to Johannesburg, South Africa; to present before an audience and international panel of judges for stage 3 (semi-finals) and 4 (grand finale). This exciting event will be part of the Finance Indaba Africa 2017 Expo!
