The team will now go on to represent Australia at the Asia-Pacific regional finals in April next year.
The ABS team pitted their skills against peers from around Australia, undertaking a comprehensive valuation analysis of company Melbourne IT. Tyler, Emma and Deepak presented their investment report of the company and argued the justification for their report recommendations to a judging panel made up of industry representatives.
ABS honours student Emma Allison says a highlight of the competition was applying the theories learnt through her program into a real-world business case analysis. Tyler, Emma and Deepak agree the competition was hugely valuable in preparing them for life after study.
The Wealth Management Cluster Leader, Professor Ralf Zurbrugg, congratulated the students on the hard work that saw them come out on top. He said the win was testimony to the students’ ability to think both critically and creatively, apply the skills learnt through their programs, and work together to produce, and critically defend, an investment report to industry standard.
Professor Zurbrugg and the Adelaide Business School community wish Tyler, Emma and Deepak the best of luck when they travel overseas to represent Australia in the Asia-Pacific competition next year. A special mention should also be made for Dr Chee Cheong, who was their academic mentor and guide during the competition.
