Four University of Portland accounting students took first place in a KPMG Accounting Competition against other Oregon schools. The students – seniors Erika Schlotfeldt and Jessie Robinson and juniors Emily Glaser and Courtney Lemon – placed ahead of teams from University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Portland State University. The UP team will now compete in the semi-finals, which will be held in mid-January in Chicago.
For the competition, the team had 48 hours to evaluate a case before presenting a 20 minute presentation to a panel of judges. The presentation was followed by a 10 minute session of questions from the judges.
