Case Competition Training Opportunities

Whether your goal is taking the first steps into the world of case competitions or honing your skills, the Beedie School of Business provides case competition training for both new and developing case competitors. By joining a training program, students will get the opportunity to work closely with coaches and like-minded peers, become exposed to the Beedie network of case competitors and gain competitive advantage to ladder into future case competition opportunities.

Spring - Case Competition Training Program (CCTP)

CCTP is designed for Beedie students who are looking to begin their case competition journey. Over the course of 9 weeks, students will gain hands-on experience and invaluable feedback from seasoned faculty and alumni coaches during weekly in-person workshops. The program runs every Spring semester and includes some asynchronous learning modules/activities each week in alignment with the workshop schedule.

Fall - Advanced Case Training Program (ACTP)

The Advanced Case Training Program runs for 5 weeks during the Fall semester and is limited to a maximum of 16 students. Students will receive advanced case competition training from SFU Beedie case competition coaches. It is meant to provide further training for students who have some case competition training/experience and want to take their skills a step higher. It is also one of three drafting pathways to select competitors to represent SFU Beedie in international case competitions the following Spring/Summer semester.

As the program is designed for students that already have basic case competition training or some case competition experience, there is an emphasis on application based practice. Please note that this is an intensive program and selected students will have the opportunity to work in teams, on different cases each week, receiving direct guidance from coaches. At the end of the program, based on performance, the coaches will select their teams to train for confirmed spring competitions that year.

Ideal ACTP applicants would, prior to application, have:

  • completed CCTP or competed in PEAK
  • competed in ELITE or JDC West
  • competed in regional industry competitions
