Business students advance to national FanTAXtic case-study finals in January

A five-student team from William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business has been named one of nine regional winners of Deloitte FanTAXtic, Deloitte’s student tax-case study competition.

Nearly 60 teams representing more than 40 colleges and universities participated in the regional event Nov. 3-4 at Deloitte offices nationwide. William & Mary business students demonstrated the ability to work collaboratively to solve a complex business case simulation. The team also was recognized for the quality of its overall presentation to a panel of judges.

The Mason team now moves on to compete Jan. 12-18 for more than $50,000 in individual scholarships and institutional awards at the Deloitte FanTAXtic national competition at Deloitte University, Deloitte’s national learning and leadership development center near Dallas.

Sponsored by Deloitte Tax LLP and supported by the Deloitte Foundation, Deloitte FanTAXtic is designed to educate and prepare the next generation of tax talent for careers in business and tax. The interactive program includes case simulations, role playing and presentations. The program provides students with insights and perspectives on challenges facing the profession today, trends that may impact it tomorrow and the overall changing business tax marketplace. Deloitte Tax LLP professionals participate in the event and offer the students support and guidance.
