Randazzo, a spring finance graduate, shares the win with teammates Eric Sudduth, a spring finance and foreign language/German graduate of Louisville, Kentucky; Von Churchwell, a spring finance graduate summa cum laude from Memphis, Tennessee; and Annabelle Peck, magna cum laude spring graduate in finance from The Colony, Texas.
This is the third straight year that MSU students have placed in the top five in the intense national competition that teaches undergraduates about banking.
The annual CSBS competition gives students hands-on experience partnering with local community banks to examine how those banks have navigated change over the past decade and what the institutions anticipate in the future, according to the press release.
Assistant Clinical Professor of Finance and Economics Matthew Whitledge advised the MSU team, which partnered with the Bank of Commerce branch in Greenwood, Mississippi. The team’s paper will be published in the Journal of Community Bank Case Studies and is available at https://www.csbs.org/bankcasestudy.
“We are all so proud of these four students and their faculty advisor, Dr. Matthew Whitledge, who works incredibly hard every year to prepare for competition,” said Sharon Oswald, Dean of MSU College of Business.
