Fisher students receive honorable mention at Deloitte case competition

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Four students from the Fisher School of Accounting received honorable mention for their performance in the Deloitte Tax Case Study Competition.

Jennifer Glenn, Jacob Hart, Daniel Johnson and Kelsey Lueck were one of only seven teams to earn honorable mention status in the graduate division. Each student was awarded $200 and the Fisher School received $2,000 for the team’s efforts. It marked the second consecutive year that the Fisher School received an honorable mention in this competition.

The competition features teams with up to four students who are given five hours to complete a complex, hypothetical case study that requires participants to analyze information, identify issues and alternative tax treatments, and develop a recommended solution that appropriately cites the Internal Revenue Code and Treasury Regulations. At the end of the competition, each team prepares a written solution to their case and submits it to a panel of judges from Deloitte’s tax practice for evaluation.

The Fisher School’s team was recognized among a field of 79 teams from 57 colleges and universities across the nation.
