Eleven undergraduate teams, a total of 44 sophomores and juniors, competed at the School of Business in the preliminary round of Deloitte’s Battle of the Beltway case competition on October 20, 2014. This was the largest Deloitte competition on campus to date, since the organization opened the field up to twelve teams per school.

Two teams will move on to the national competition in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 10.

Team 1:
Yuhan Wang, Undeclared, Sophomore
Kelley Ostrander, Economics, Junior
Amy Xie, Biology, Junior
Lauren Formica, Economics, Junior

Team 2:
Pearson Lien, Mathematical Business, Junior
Victoria Sorkin, Accountancy, Junior
Sarah Cacciabaudo, Accountancy, Junior
Marco Critelli, Business & Enterprise Management, Junior

“As someone who has been involved with all the Beltway competitions on campus since Deloitte asked Wake Forest to participate, I am so proud of the accomplishments of our students,” said Dana Hutchens, employer experience manager. “The students prepared with mock case sessions, case programming and workshops and practice rounds. Diligent in their preparations, our students were competitive during the campus competition, but still gracious and thankful to their classmates and judges.”

Last year, a team of Wake Forest undergraduates won the national competition, the first time since the competition began in 2009. Read more about their accomplishments in the 2013-14 Wake Forest Business Magazine.
