STAMFORD, Conn. (PRWEB) - ACG Connecticut, the premier association of dealmakers in the state, today awarded the fourth annual ACG Connecticut Cup to a team of MBA students from Sacred Heart University, edging out student teams from the University of Connecticut and Yale University.“This is very close to a real-world exercise for these MBA students,” said ACG Connecticut Cup Chairman Justin Blum of M&T Bank. “The teams were allowed one week to develop a central thesis encompassing valuation, capital markets and M&A strategic recommendations that they then had to pitch to a panel of three judges, representing the board of directors of the client company. Each had the same case information and background information, which they were able to access from Merrill Datasite, our sponsor. The case study was prepared by Houlihan Lokey, also a sponsor.”
