Marquette University took top honors at the 2011 ACG Cup on February 19th; it is the second year in a row the university’s team has won. As champions, they collected the $5,000 first place prize.

Team members were David Blong, Darren Dewing, Brad Hutjens and Tara Stewart. Teams from UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee were also awarded $1,500 prizes as runners-up.

The ACG Cup is a business scenario, based on a real-life M&A transaction, in which students act as advisors to business executives, made up of ACG WI members and mentors.

The competition offers students vital preparation as future practitioners in the business world and allows business executives to meet new talent.

Judging is done by a panel of ACG WI members who are themselves managing directors of private equity firms, executives of corporations, or leaders in Milwaukee’s investment banking community.

This is a unique event in which theory meets real-life. In addition, the ACG cup serves as an exchange of ideas and talent that positions the state of Wisconsin as a more attractive and dynamic place for professionals and investors.
