Get noticed by PwC — play the xTREME Games!
Accounting | Sep 30, 2010 | admin
Not every college or university is lucky enough to be selected by accounting powerhouse PwC to participate in its xTREME Games.
Sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi, this competition offers students, especially those who aspire to a career in accounting, a very real chance to show what you can do. Start forming your team, and come to the McGinley lobby on October 12, 2010, to register.
The following information comes directly from the PwC site:
Why compete in PwC’s xACT or xTAX? Do you want to team with friends to learn more about business issues and how to make a difference in the business world? Do you want to connect with the world’s leading professional services firm to help guide your career? Would you like to gain recognition and improve your teamwork, critical thinking and communications skills? If you answered yes, then PwC’s xACT or xTAX is for you.
Business is the place where theory is executed in real time. It’s a place where decisions are made with consequences, where communication is key, and collaborative, team-oriented thinking is a must. These are the conditions created in the xTREME Games, PwC’s Tax and Accounting Campus Competitions.
No longer within the safe confines of the classroom, PwC seeks students who are eager to plunge briefly into the environment of the real business world to show what they’re made of as critical thinkers, able collaborators and persuasive advisors on important business issues.
No number crunching exercises, the xTREME Games are focused on high-level issues designed to test and improve your decision-making skills. Detailed accounting or tax knowledge is not required to participate. What is required is your desire to learn, meet new people, experience new challenges, and have fun!
Our 2010 xTREME campuses are designated for either the xACT competition OR the xTAX competition. Read on for more information about how it works, what it takes to succeed, and to see if your school is a participant!
