Five Teams move to Community Bank Case Study Competition Final Round

Five student teams this week advanced to finals in the 2020 CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition, emerging from the second round of 20 teams. 

The student teams are from Concordia College, James Madison University, Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, Mississippi State University and Purdue University.

This year’s competition examines the impact of the Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering (BSA- AML) requirements on community banks. The top three scoring student teams from the final round of judging will be announced on June 18 on the CSBS website:

“These five student teams have shown an incredible amount of insight into the impact of BSA-AML, which is particularly impressive given the pandemic,” said CSBS Senior Executive Vice President Michael L. Stevens. “Choosing the top three teams will be a challenge.”

This is the sixth year of the competition, which is open to undergraduate students in all fields of study as an opportunity to gain valuable first-hand knowledge of the banking industry. The teams advancing to the final round were chosen from a pool of 37 student teams representing 33 colleges and universities. 

Each student member and faculty advisor of the first-place winning team will receive a $1,000 scholarship and be invited to present at the CSBS-Federal Reserve-FDIC Community Banking in the 21st Century Research and Policy Conference. Their work will be published in the annual CSBS Journal of Community Bank Case Studies. Teams that place second and third will also receive scholarships and have their works published in the journal.
