Audit Innovation Campus Challenge

The LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business Department of Accounting participates in the Deloitte Audit Innovation Campus Challenge (AICC). The objective of the regional competition is to respond to an audit innovation challenge statement presented by the sponsor and give a presentation on your team's solution in front of the regional evaluation panel. By participating in the competition, students have an opportunity to network with Deloitte professionals and leverage their skills and experience by responding to a reality-based challenge statement.

Participant requirements include:

  • Six members per team - junior/senior-level students (may not exceed two) and sophomore/junior-level students (four-six)
  • Any major eligible
  • 3.3 minimum GPA required
  • Currently enrolled or completed accounting I or equivalent

For the next challenge, preliminary regional competitions will take place in early 2019. Students interested in participating should email Assistant Professor Sanaz Aghazadeh for more information.

National Accounting Case Competition

For the first and only time competing, the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business Department of Accounting participated in the National Accounting Case Competition. For the competition, each team was assigned a different case based on actual situations Deloitte encountered during audits. They then presented their findings to a panel of Deloitte partners and retired partners who serve as members of an Audit Committee. All cases included examining the standards in detail and applying professional judgment to determine the solution. The event was held at Deloitte University in Westlake, Texas.

The 2016 competition was the last year the National Accounting Case Competition was held.
