The competition will feature eight teams of MBA students from the University of Alberta, the University of Victoria, and the University of British Columbia, as well as from the Beedie School of Business full-time MBA and Management of Technology MBA programs.
Competing teams will be emailed the case at 5.30pm on Friday, May 30, and will be required to present their recommendations at 12.30pm the next day to a panel of esteemed judges, consisting of faculty, alumni and industry professionals.
The competition will offer approximately $2,500 in prizes, and will provide students with the opportunity to hone the skills learned in their studies, and enjoy networking opportunities with fellow students and participating judges.
