THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University’s Community Bank Case Study Competition student team is one of 15 nationwide that have advanced to a second round of the 2019 Conference of State Bank Supervisors competition.
The team, selected by finance faculty, partnered with a local community bank to develop a case study using the bank’s story through media including essay, charts and video.
This year’s competition examines how the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act has helped community banks foster economic growth.
Teams advancing to the second round were chosen from a pool of 58 undergraduate student teams representing 44 colleges and universities.
The CSBS’ competition aims to give students first-hand knowledge of the banking industry.
The students’ work will be judged by two additional panels of experts, with the top three teams being announced on May 23 at the CSBS State-Federal Supervisors Symposium in San Antonio. The announcement will be streamed live on Twitter, at @CSBSNews.
Winners receive an academic scholarship, a chance to get their work published in an academic journal and an opportunity to attend the seventh annual CSBS-Federal Reserve Community Banking Research Conference, which will be in St. Louis in October.
