Okanagan College Media Release

3rd place accounting Nov 2012A team of Okanagan College students proved they have a head for business, after coming in third place in the Certified Management Accountants-BC Case Competition up against 30 teams from colleges and universities around the province.

Ben Ankenbauer, Cam Bailey, Jordan Innes and Meng An Chao took home a $1,000 cheque for their performance in the challenging two-day competition held in Vancouver Nov. 2 and 3. Only 10 teams made it to the final round.

The team was one of two Okanagan College teams that took part in the event, which started Friday evening with students preparing a case on strategic leadership that they presented before the judges on Saturday.

“The presentations were all so great this year,” said CMA-BC business development officer Katie Hensrud.

Camosun College took first place, and Kwantlen Polytechnic University came in second. Other teams taking part in the finals were from UBC (Vancouver and Okanagan campuses), Simon Fraser University, and Capilano University.

Matt Podewils, Amanda Wright, Benton Calder and Julia Ufimzeff comprised the second Okanagan College team.

Okanagan School of Business professor Karen Matthews, who coached the two accounting teams, said the case was demanding, but the students were up for the challenge.

“Their analysis was good, the flow of their presentation was good, and their presentation was good,” she said. “The students were all great ambassadors for Okanagan College.”
