Fred Lang Case Competition Challenges Students to Assess Market Risk

The Fred Lang Student Case Competition returned this year with three student group teams delivering well-constructed case analyses to a panel of accounting practitioners, and fielding judges’ tough questions on May 17. The case focuses on the risks of expanding into new foreign markets, such as Nigeria.

After deliberation, a group from Accounting Instructor Patti Smith’s class–Devan Eager, Zhenya Qi, Patrick Baldys and Anthony Sanchez–took top honors, with National Association of Black Accountants members Jerome Dotson, Tamara Tillman, Zack Moi and Imani Flowers coming in second. Judges this year were Bel Needles, EY Professor of Accounting, Jennifer Gart from Citadel, and Gordon Schwartz from BDO. This year’s case was developed by Prof. Wendy Heltzer.
