The recently concluded 2016 edition of the CFO Case Study Competition saw 320 teams from 53 universities, 25 countries and five continents take on the challenge, competing to win a cash price of R100,000. The winners were Team Athena from the Copperbelt University in Zambia. CFO South Africa and the Finance Indaba Africa 2017 will host the 2017 global finals of the CFO Case Study Competition.

Valentine Nti, CEO of The CharterQuest Institute and Project Director, said:

''Feedback from business leaders, policy makers, universities, professional bodies, judges, sponsors and aspirants show a strong case for this prestigious business challenge. The 2017 edition promises to be an even bigger, more spectacular and globally competitive challenge with more teams from Europe, North America and Asia. Stay tuned for developments in 2017."
