Leveraging our classroom and co-op experiences to make it to the top
Today’s accounting and finance professionals face many adverse challenges, now more than ever. Attending and competing in the 2021 Achieve Case Competition while representing the University of Waterloo and the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) was not only a great learning experience but also a time to showcase courage in redefining the future and overcoming challenges.
After partaking in the 2021 Achieve Case Competition, our team learned that there is an immense need for advisors/consultants with accounting and finance backgrounds to look beyond the financial numbers and help businesses not only get back on their feet but also strive for success! In order to fully analyze the situation facing many business owners, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of the language of business. Our team also learned that it is important to be able to apply course concepts while also bringing in experiences and knowledge beyond the classroom for a more comprehensive solution.
As students of today and professionals of tomorrow, we highly recommend students to participate in case competitions because it provides an exceptional learning experience!
