The University of Southern California Wins Duff & Phelps YOUniversity Deal Challenge

A team of students from The University of Southern California recently took top honors at the Duff & Phelps YOUniversity Deal Challenge 2014. USC has had teams in the finals in previous years, but this is their first victory. 
 
Now concluding its fifth year, the Duff & Phelps YOUniversity Deal Challenge engages teams of college juniors from around the world to hone a broad range of skills, including mergers and acquisitions advisory, transaction opinions, transfer pricing, dispute consulting and valuation advisory. By working with team members to solve problems presented in a complex fact pattern, participants applied technical reasoning and critical thinking throughout key stages of the deal-making process. In the end, participants had a stronger perspective on how a deal comes together. Finalists received a trip to New York and the chance to compete for scholarships.

Congratulations to first-place winners Carson Lam, Dekel Sherman, Max Teles and case advisor Julia Plotts from The University of Southern California. 
 
As an independent valuation advisory and corporate finance firm, Duff & Phelps is committed to preparing the next generation of financial professionals to meet tomorrow's valuation challenges.
