Business students from The University of Western Australia have swept the field to win first, second and third place in WA's 2012 Deloitte Dream Team competition.
The annual inter-university competition run by Deloitte Perth encourages students to expand their skill sets and perspectives by solving realistic business problems through the use of case studies and delivering finals presentations to Deloitte Partners.
This year, first place went to undergraduate students Reynold Lo (Law/Commerce) and Todd Soulas (Law/Arts); second place was won by Natrisha Barnett (Arts/Economics), Nicole Chiam (Law/Commerce) and Sidarth Jain (Commerce/Engineering); and third place went to Joshua Bon (Commerce/Computer and Mathematical Sciences), Daniel Randazzo (Law/Commerce) and Kaiwen Wang (Economics/Commerce).
UWA Business School Dean Winthrop Professor Phil Dolan congratulated the students on their success.
"This competition represents an important opportunity for UWA Business School students to put into practice what is taught in the classroom," Professor Dolan said.
"Their success in competition with students from other WA universities is a testament to the strength of the UWA Business School's teaching and the quality of our students."
The 2012 Deloitte Dream Team competition focussed on the fictional "2012 Dotfordshire Global Games" and required teams to complete Risk, Finance, Strategy and Stakeholder Management tasks for organisations such as airport authorities, police and TV stations.
The competition was held over several days, with students delivering their presentations to Deloitte Staff and university representatives early last month.
