The Adviser: Sweater Weather

The Adviser is a monthly activity where students take on the role of an accounting adviser. Each month, your students will accept a challenge from a local business that needs accounting help. Through a variety of individual and team exercises, your students will learn and incorporate both technical accounting concepts and soft skills needed to be successful.

This month, your students will tackle the concepts of supply and demand through a fun, engaging activity. SubZero, a popular local clothing store, needs help with pricing their new line of holiday sweaters. It’s up to your students to help design a sweater concept, run market research with their classmates, and suggest a selling price for SubZero to receive the highest monetary profit.

The downloadable activity includes a student worksheet and a teacher answer key.
