East Meets West

MBA Leadership Case Competition

About the Competition

The weekend long competition is co-organized by Ivey’s Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership and the Canadian Centre for Advanced Leadership in Business at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. Each year, the schools alternate as hosts.  The topic of the competition is the development of the next generation of business leaders.

2020 Team

This year, the competition took place from February 6th to 8th and explored the balance of fiscal demands and ethical challenges in leadership.

JMSB delegates Stéphane Larin, Jennifer Ward, Sapandeep Randhawa and Paola Sunyé were selected from the Strategies in Action (MBA 695) class. On top of class practices, they dedicated over 60 hours to preparing for this competition!

“I am super happy and proud of our team! We had our best performance along our road and I was glad to have learned something different this competition. I am super privileged to work with these guys and am happy to have had the chance to represent JMSB!” – Sapandeep Singh Randhawa

2019 Team

Our JMSB delegates Anne Morinville, Karolyne Courville, Evan Baker and Nataraajan Arulolie competed at the 5th Edition of the East Meets West MBA Leadership Case Competition, held at Western University- Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario from February 7 to 9, 2019. The theme surrounded business leadership.

On day 1, schools were broken up and split into mixed teams, allowing all the participants to crack a case with new team members from across the country. On day 2, teams participated with their peers for a second case. Both cases were followed by a debrief session with industry leaders and academics on the topic covered in the case. These sessions proved to be very insightful to the participants, who also had the opportunity to ask questions to the judges and subject experts. On both days, participants had the chance to network during social events. The competition was executed flawlessly. According to Evan Baker (participant):

“East Meets West was a meeting not only of top business schools from across Canada, but a true meeting of minds. From walking into the impressively designed main campus at Ivey, to rubbing elbows with CEOs and highly experienced board members, this competition deepened my gratitude for the opportunities that pursuing a John Molson MBA has given me. I took full advantage of my time in London to make new friendships and nurture old ones, learn from many people far smarter and more experienced than I, and to put into practice the hard work and dedication of my colleagues as we represented our school, and ourselves, to the Canadian MBA community.”

The winner of the competition was University of Manitoba- Asper School of Business. A total of 10 teams and universities participated.



The JMSB MBA Case Competition Committee (MBACCC) publishes 2 newsletters every study term to present the events and results of the MBACCC’s efforts in promoting case competitions and representing JMSB in various case competitions.



The MBACCC saw incredible student engagement in this year’s events, with over 60 applicants for the SIA/Live Case Tryouts, over 20 applicants for the MBACCC recruitment, and overall actively engaging 100+ students through Bootcamps/Workshops and Internal Case Competition.

The newsletter and website have been revamped to increase clarity and usability, to reach more students. We have successfully managed to achieve an average of 500 monthly visitors to the website, with 200 (on avg.) being unique.

We are delighted to announce the next team of the MBA CCC, a group of accomplished individuals poised to lead the committee to new heights. This team will be the steward of JMSB’s case competition program in 2023-24. This year’s recruitment process witnessed an unprecedented level of interest, a testament to the enduring enthusiasm of the JMSB student community.

Babita Bhandari, Sriram Menon, Mehul Bawa, and Lisa Malachowski represented JMSB at the HEC CSR Challenge held in March and secured 2nd Place.

The contest comprised of three cases – a research challenge to devise a DEI strategy for the First Women’s Bank, and two traditional cases that emphasized the circular economy. One case centered on electronics recycling while the other focused on the pharmaceutical industry. In a pool of 21 International MBA teams, our team advanced to the final round and secured the 2nd position in the overall rankings!

Jonathan Faerman and Damian Wolff coached and supported the team to prepare them for the competition.

Dhiraj Gaikwad, Raul Braganza, Lorenze Dsouza, and Sridharan Vankeepuram represented JMSB in the inaugural edition of the McGill-Desautels Negotiation Competition. 10 teams of MBA students from across Canada competed and more than 30 negotiation experts judged at the event.

Over the course of two days, teams gave their best and tried to impress the judging panels with their exceptional negotiation skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities. Their business acumen and expertise were absolutely crucial. Our team was given the award for “Best Team Players” by the judges for their professional attitude and communication skills.

Himanshu Srivastava, Hiral Parekh, Nishant Gaurav and Sridharan Vankeepuram represented JMSB in the Digital Innovation Challenge Case Competition organized by Haskayne School of Business and won 1st place.

The competition consisted of two rounds. In the first round, the teams were given a 24-hour research mandate on how can AI-based technology companies leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) to manage employee burnout due to the fast-paced nature of the industry and skill shortage. The teams had to do a 15-minute presentation followed by a 10-minute Q&A session for both rounds. The top five teams qualified for the final. The final mandate was an added twist of getting buy-in from skeptical employees. The short-term solution was to actively involve employees to increase engagement and in the long-term automate tasks through AI to improve their work-life quality.

Jeremy Rutman and Fatima Malik coached and prepared the team for the research-focused competition and the 24-hour-long case-cracking session.

Himanshu Srivastava, Hiral Parekh, Nishant Gaurav, and Sridharan Vankeepuram represented JMSB in the International Business Ethics Case Competition which consisted of 3 separate events. The team placed in all three competitions: 90 seconds – 1st Place, 10 minutes – 3rd Place, and 25 minutes – 3rd Place.

The competition is based on self-selected ethics-based research mandates. The ethical, legal, and financial implications along with a recommendation had to be analyzed and presented. The team focused on “How to manage AI-induced bias in hiring practices to avoid marginalization of already disadvantaged groups?” The team placed judges in the role of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) to present their solutions. Teams from North America, the UK, Europe, and Asia competed in this competition.

Fatima Malik, Roshni Tamil Selvan, and Jeremy Rutman coached and supported the team throughout their preparation for the competition.
