Xavier University's Finance Department is seeking a greater Cincinnati-based business to participate in its Finance 488-Applied Financial Strategy class during the spring semester of 2014. The participating business will benefit from a 17-week strategic planning process led by two Xavier University Finance Professors, and staffed by fourth-year finance students. This strategic planning engagement will help the participating business refine strategic approaches to and action plans for a current business problem or opportunity while providing valuable real life experience to the participating students.

Qualifications of the participating business:

  • $3 million to $5 million in sales.
  • Minimum of 3 years of established financial statements.
  • At least one operating location in the greater Cincinnati area.
  • Products or manufacturing businesses are preferred.
  • Ability for business personnel to work with the class 2-3 hours per week over course of the semester (one hour during scheduled class time).
  • Demonstrated interest by the business in developing the skills of the students involved in the engagement.

There is no cost to the participating business except for the time expended with the class and in follow-up meetings.

At the conclusion of the semester's engagement, the students will deliver a board room presentation of the strategic plan developed during the engagement as well as a formal strategic planning document.

The participating business will be selected by November 15, 2013.

Interested businesses should contact Professor Julie Cagle, Xavier University, Department of Finance at cagle@xavier.edu for additional information.

The Xavier Leadership Center is Now Offering CMA

The Xavier Leadership Center is now offering CMA - Certified Management Accounting - certification. According to Dr. Sandra Richtermeyer, chair of the XU Williams College of Business, the CMA designation offers a track for individuals in accounting & finance who want to do something different from a CPA track. The CMA has become a global passport as it is recognized as a professional designation that crosses borders but maintains industry standards. Anyone interested in the CMA should attend the CMA information session on August 13th from 5 p.m. -7 p.m. at the Cintas Center. Visit http://xavierleadershipcenter.com/ to register.
