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.

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.
The 2016 Deloitte Case Competition team included Ryan Lachney, Rebecca Werdine, Ethan Collins, Ellie Bowen, and Megan Keuther
