UIC teams achieved a historic victory at the Qualification Programme (QP) Case Analysis Competition podium in Guangzhou on 7 December 2014. The champions also received the Best Presenter Award.

UIC teams have won four titles in six years, and for three consecutive years now they have ended both first and second in this esteemed competition.



The champions receive rewards from Susanna Chiu (middle), adjudication panel member and HKICPA immediate past president.


Organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the QP Case Analysis Competition is one of the few advanced accounting contests in mainland China. It requires students to demonstrate their abilities in knowledge, teamwork, leadership, and analytical and problem-solving skills through their case analysis.



 UIC's winning teams, their advisors and Dean of DBM Prof Stella Cho celebrate after the competition.

In the first round, 414 contestants from over 50 universities were required to submit an executive summary with financial analysis of a business plan about the healthcare and medical beauty industry. Thirty shortlisted teams then presented elaborate reports in the second round, with the top eight teams chosen to compete in the final showdown.

Six teams from UIC’s Division of Business Management (DBM) took part in the second round of the competition, and three of them entered the national finals and achieved outstanding results.
