Team Competition in Financial Accounting at UACS
On December 10 2018, UACS held the annual Financial Accounting Competition. This competition is being held for the fourth time, and encompasses the students enrolled in the Finance and Banking and the Accounting and Audit study programs.
Under the mentorship of Asst. Prof. Dusica Stevcevska–Srbinoska, PhD, the students presented projects on marketing and financial analysis of a segment from the Macedonian confectionery industry. The companies subject to bench-marking were Vitaminka AD Prilep, member of the UACS Business Council, and Grupacija Krash. The students had to use tools learned in class and apply them for the purpose of interpreting the publicly disclosed annual consolidated reports of the companies, as well as for recommending and highlighting segments in need of improvement.
The competition itself was supported by Vitaminka AD Prilep. The company representatives, Branimir Dimkov and Sanja Vezenkoska, took an active role as committee members along with Assoc. Prof. Snezhana Hristova, PhD and Asst. Prof. Dusica Stevcevska-Srbinoska, PhD. Vitaminka also brought gifts for the participants, as well as awards for the winners.
