Event description
Accounting for Social Impact Case Competition for students from New Zealand; Australia; and the Pacific Islands

About this event

The Accounting for Social Impact Research Group at the Auckland University of Technology will host the Accounting for Social Impact Case Competition on Friday, 26 November 2021. The event aims to promote students’ understanding of how accounting technologies and practices can be used to develop innovative solutions to address real-world problems.

Students from New Zealand; Australian; and Pacific Island universities are invited to participate in the competition in groups of 2-3.

Students are encouraged to explore key social issues of interest, identify roles of accounting in understanding the issues and achieving social impact, and suggest innovative solutions to address social issues. From the submissions received, the top-rated case writers will be invited to present their case before a panel of judges.

The panel of judges will comprise representatives from the accounting profession, including academics and practitioners. They will judge the submissions and the presentations. Individuals representing key societal stakeholder groups will also be present.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three winning teams. One prize will also be awarded to the overall winner for the most innovative case.

Participating in the event will allow students to build a better awareness of the social impact of accounting in organisations and society, develop a range of personal and business skills (critical thinking, problem-solving and interpersonal skills) and create networks with fellow students and community groups.
