About ACG Cup

ACG Cup is an intercollegiate competition among business school students from colleges and universities across the nation. Retaining and recruiting talent in Minnesota is a major objective of the Cup competition for ACG Minnesota's Chapter. During competition, students analyze complex business cases and present strategies involving merger and acquisition alternatives, valuation, capital markets, finance options, and corporate strategy. Student participants gain invaluable experience in a real-world context, receive feedback from leaders in the local business community,  and create networks, all while competing for a cash prize.

ACG CUP 2024:
The ACG Cup is a unique case study competition designed to give students from leading undergraduate and MBA programs invaluable insights into mergers & acquisitions, investment banking, financial advisory and private equity. 

Student teams are given a real-life case prepared by ACG finance professionals. The case study will be 15-20 pages on a business issue/problem that the students must analyze and then provide recommendations on valuation, capital markets, and M&A advice to a panel of investment professionals from the Minneapolis area. The purpose of the competition is to give students real-life experience in mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, private equity and strategic alternatives. The competition also gives students a great opportunity to showcase their professional and academic skills
