Will DentonWhen the finance and real-estate department of Colorado State University’s College of Business assembled its best students to compete in a prestigious competition, it made sure senior Will Denton was on the team. The 2016 Liberty grad and School Captain led the four-man team in winning first place, pulling down a big trophy, and hauling in $1,500 in prize money in Colorado’s seminal case competition.

Denton is now a senior finance and real-estate major. The competition focused on assessing retail investment opportunities in the New Orleans region utilizing risk assessment, market analysis, property acquisition, and many more skills.

According to the CSU story, “as they developed their strategy, members started to see that classroom educational exercises are developed to teach a single concept. In the case competition, much like the real world, issues aren’t as clear cut. The complexity added a dimension that expanded on the team members’ coursework.”

The victory was chronicled in a recent feature article posted at the College of Business’ website, and can be read here.
