    2nd annual Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit 2

  • Purpose:In July 2009, The 2nd Annual Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit at Miami University on Integrity, Leadership, and Transparency (Business Excellence Summit) will engage select undergraduates from the top accounting programs in the United States and abroad. These students will participate in a two-day summit involving interactive case studies led by the Co-Directors of Miamis Center for Business Excellence and graduate students who have taken courses based on integrity, leadership, and transparency and their role in achieving long-term shareholder value. The Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit will introduce students to the critical need for businesses to exude integrity, leadership, and transparency in todays world economy. Like the 1st Summit in 2008, the 2009

    program will include case studies that integrate these topics into business scenarios requiring decision-makers to consider competing needs of various stakeholders. This experience will provide students with an understanding that successful business professionals consistently emphasize integrity, leadership, and transparency when making key business decisions. Participating in the Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit will be 40 undergraduates selected from among many of the top accounting programs in the United States and abroad. Students will present their findings in an informal environment to improve their presentation skills. The Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit will integrate integrity, leadership, and transparency into discussions of current business topics that engage students who are in the early stages of learning about the responsibilities of being a business professional. The discussion also will involve professionals from Ernst & Young, who will offer thier perspectives throughout the summit.

  • attendees:Invitations will be based on performance in Ernst & Youngs leadership programs offered to high-performing students at its key recruiting universities throughout the United States and abroad. For example, in 2009, Ernst & Young will select three or four students each from its regional leadership programs offered in the United States and Canada.

    agenda:The Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit will involve two days of scheduled dynamic classroom activities, in addition to informal interaction during breaks and meals. All classroom sessions and meals will be conducted at the Marcum Conference Center and the new Farmer School of Business building on the Miami University campus in Oxford, Ohio. Materials will be developed by the Center for Business Excellence Co-Directors and they will also lead the classroom sessions. Students are placed into four to six person teams, led by current and former Masters in Accountancy students at Miami University who studied these areas. These individuals will be called Team Mentors and will demonstrate the importance of the mentoring process to the student participants.

    A formal kick-off dinner on the evening before the event begins will include current and former students who participated in graduate courses focused on business excellence through integrity, leadership and transparency, as well as other

    Miami University faculty and select representatives from Ernst & Young. A keynote speech by Ernst & Young Global Vice Chair, Beth Brooke, will occur during the dinner. At the conclusion of the first day, a casual dinner and ice sports at Miamis new Goggin Ice Arena will enable the students to get to know each other better by participating in activities that feature team-building and leadership opportunities.

  • Stephanie Goldberg, an accounting major at Pennsylvania State university, was picked from among 1,000 peers to attend the first Ernst & Young Business Excellence Summit at Miami university in 2008. Her attendance at the summit was featured in a Business Week story touting Ernst & Young as the Best Place to Start a Career.

    It was a really good opportunity to apply everything from school, says Goldberg. It was an awesome time.
