National Student Case Competition
Teams of students respond to a published case by preparing and submitting a videotaped presentation to judges selected from IMA members. The 2009 finals competition will be held at IMA's Annual Conference and Exposition in Denver, Colorado on June 6-10, 2009. This very exciting competition presents students with real life challenges and the opportunity to:

The case study is published in the September 2008 issue of Strategic Finance.
