Another way the Foundation introduces relevant real-world experience to students is through its case study programs for undergraduate and graduate accounting majors and MBA students. The Foundation sponsors student case study competitions in the areas of audit, tax and consulting, with scholarships awarded to top achievers. The events provide students with the chance to not only explore the types of practical issues that our professionals encounter every day, but also to experience aspects of the professional working environment, including group dynamics, and communication and interpersonal skills.
