ACG Cup is an intercollegiate competition among business school students from colleges and universities across the nation. Retaining and recruiting talent in West Michigan is a major objective of the Cup competition for ACG Western Michigan. Student participants will gain invaluable experience in a real-world context, receive feedback from leaders in the local business community, create networks, and compete for a cash prize. During competition, students analyze complex business cases and present strategies involving merger and acquisition alternatives, valuation, capital markets, finance options, and corporate strategy.
ACG CUP 2021: UPDATES for this year's competition
ACG Western Michigan is known for bringing together a robust and diverse group of students representing teams from around our state. In 2021, the Western Michigan Chapter will hold the ACG Cup competition on a virtual platform, and we anticipate even greater interest and participation further afield. Be sure to go to our ACG Cup Details pageHERE to learn about 2021's upcoming event.
The uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated a shift in the way many organizations experience the world. ACG Western Michigan's Board of Directors have committed to ensuring the health, safety, and security of our members and guests by offering virtual programming and events through the end of 2020. As many schools and universities are still navigating in-person and virtual instruction as we begin the 2020-2021 academic year, our planners decided to move to a virtual competition to ease the burden on school decision-makers, ensure our teams can prepare and compete in a safe environment, and open up our competition to a greater audience. We're really excited about expanding the reach of the Cup event and welcoming new competitors to our scene!
In this transition to a virtual competition, there are some elements that will necessarily need to shift as we develop the 2021 competition. ACG Western Michigan is working to provide the very best possible event for our competitors, professors, volunteer judges, and staff.
