Wake Students Advance in Case Competition

A team of Wake Forest University students will advance to the national level of KPMG’s International Case Study Competition. 

The team includes accountancy major Megan Petitt (’11), finance majors Tim Rodgers (’11) and Swayze Smartt (’11), and business and enterprise management major Afton Vechery (’11). The group won the regional competition on Jan. 21 in Atlanta and will travel to New York to compete nationally against six other teams on Feb. 4.

C48F0958 “The Wake Forest team consists of four highly motivated, extremely bright and positively spirited students,” said Anna Cianci (left), assistant professor of accounting and faculty advisor for the KPMG competition team.

“They have the intellectual horsepower and energetic enthusiasm to go all the way in this competition,” Cianci added. “I know the entire Wake Forest community is wishing them the best!”

The winner of the national competition will travel to Istanbul, Turkey, to compete in a three day competition against the winning teams from more than a dozen other countries.
