The Deficit. Income Tax. Social Security. Know what to do about them all? Hope so–you’re advising a candidate for President, and he (or she) is counting on your wisdom. The 2012 AICPA Accounting Competition is students’ shot at applying those ingenious insights and presenting a plan in Washington, D.C. Strongest strategy nets a cool $10,000. But hey, who ever got into politics for financial gain?
The proposed policies have been pitched and the adrenaline rush of presenting has passed. The Top 3 teams laid it all on the line and the results are in. Second-runners up snagged $2,500. First-runners up pocketed $5,000. And the supreme team netted a cool $10,000. But if you weren't among them, there's always next year. Plus, a stellar career in accounting pretty much assures you'll be scoring big bucks on a bimonthly basis.
Sure, the competition has come to an end. But that's not to say there's not more great stuff to glean when it comes to managerial accounting. Meet Sarah Brack and get a glimpse of life as a CPA with a CGMA credential.
