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 John Molson School of Business (JMSB) MBA Case Competition Committee (MBACCC) is proud to present the results of the MBACCC’s efforts in promoting case competitions and representing JMSB globally and internationally in various case competitions.
