This past August, five UW Foster students traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with EY as a reward for winning the EY Beam Abroad Advisory case competition. Each year EY hosts a campus case competition on several west region university campuses. The winning team from each campus is invited to participate in a regional competition in Los Angeles, CA. The winning team from UW beat 8 other local UW teams as well as 7 other west region schools in LA. The team was awarded $6,500 as well as a trip to Rio for five days. While in Rio, the team spent two days sightseeing the Christ Redeemer Statue, Sugar Loaf Mountain and famous beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema. The group visited the EY Rio office and spent the afternoon at the International Olympic Headquarters as EY is an Official Sponsor of the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games. This trip was meant to help show students EY’s Global brand as well as immerse students in a different cultural experience.
