Every year the MBA CCC organizes an Internal Case Competition for the MBA program. The competition provides students with the opportunity to implement their in-class learning to solve real-world business problems which are usually provided by the sponsors of the competition. The Internal Case Competition serves as an excellent experiential opportunity to develop your strategic thinking while solving real-world business challenges. The competition also presents networking opportunities for the students and the sponsors.
In the Fall of 2022, MBA CCC organized an in-person Internal Case Competition in collaboration with the Concordia University Alumni Association (CUAA). The theme of the competition was Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
The MBACCC organized a coaching session to guide and streamline the thought processes of students. Prof. Tim lead the discussion and answered the queries that the students had on the case. The teams were taken through a sample case that helped them to understand the process of case-solving. The event was a success as all 9 teams participated and benefitted from it.
The day began with a briefing for the judges on the case led by Cedrin Law. The teams were divided into 3 panels and one team from each panel was advanced to the final.
The teams were allotted 20 minutes for presentation followed by a 10-minute Q & A by the judges. The judges provided valuable feedback to all the teams after each presentation. The finalists presented for 20 minutes in front of all the judges followed by a 15-minute Q & A.
After all the presentations, the event was shifted to the Winston Churchill Pub at Crescent Street. The winners were announced, followed by a networking cocktail where the participants got a chance to interact with their peers, the judges, and the CUAA board members who were part of the panel of judges for the day.
“The work that the teams put into their presentations was very impressive which made it very difficult to choose the finalist in our group and then choose the winning team overall. The event was very well organized by JMSB. It was good experience.” – David Kierans, Director, Concordia University Alumni Association
