Announcing the Top 10 winners of WACC 2017
AAB 2017.06.30

We are pleased to announce that the Top 10 teams have been selected for the WACC 2017. 

The results of WACC 2017 have been sent to each team. It was a very difficult decision for the committee to select the top 10 winners due to the high competition and quality of contestants submissions.

A great number of cases was submitted for this competition. Each submission was carefully reviewed according to the evaluative criteria specified in the WACC guidelines. In addition to the typical substantive considerations, papers were judged on the basis of their fit within the competition theme, significance of the topic, and readiness for presentation/publication.  


Congratulations to the winners! You did a great job. To those who did not make the Top 10, please do not think any less of your potential to have a successful future. 

Altogether, we were very impressed by the caliber of every team's case and believe that you all have a bright future ahead.   

We will proudly invite the Top 10 winners to the final presentation and award ceremony on August 12 (Saturday) at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea. At this AAB international conference, the Top 10 teams will present and receive their awards where world renowned scholars and business leaders will join together for the wonderful event. At the event, the first and second place winners will be selected based on the final presentation as well as the final submission they already submitted. For more information about the final presentation and the conference program and event, please refer to our AAB website, www.aabworld.org.


As announced, as part of the AAB Global Scholarship Award package for the Top 10 winners, we will arrange hotel accommodations for 3 nights and 4 days (August 11-14) for the final presentation and conference period.
