The university will light the Tower entirely orange on Monday, Nov. 18, for the McCombs School of Business student team who took first place in the EY Beam Abroad Case Competition Nov. 1.

The team consisted of graduate accounting students Sean Shen and Leo Chen, and BBA students Shannon Wey, Robert Ma and Janet Zhou. They took home the grand prize of $5,000 for the team and a trip to London over spring break.

The Beam Abroad Case Competition focuses on cases requiring an understanding of United States and international accounting issues, as well as the ability to demonstrate a global mindset. The teams are given a week to prepare their presentation.

Congratulations, Longhorns!
