Business Administration Accounting students, Amreen Azam, Chris Daoust and Eric Chan represented Sheridan College well at the inaugural CGA province-wide case competition recently held at Centennial College in Scarborough on March 26, 2011.

“The 2011 CGA Accounting Case competition was a great opportunity for our students to gain both confidence and experience,” said Sally Mitzel, Sheridan College Accounting program coordinator.

The day-long event saw 18 teams from across the province presenting their recommendations to solve a real-world problem. Top prize was awarded to St. Lawrence College. The competition was organized and sponsored by CGA Ontario and hosted by Centennial College.

Participants in the CGA Event had 120 minutes to devise a resolution to the set case study. Each team consisted of two to three students. Teams had 15 minutes to present their solutions to a panel of judges, and also faced five minutes of questioning. Students competed for valuable prizes, including scholarships and cash awards for the CGA program of professional studies.

The Sheridan team was supported by the Trafalgar Accounting Student Association and the Sheridan College Faculty of Business.
