Organized by the MBA CCC on 12th March 2022 in collaboration with PMP – Performance Management Partner, was the first In person case competition of year.
Every year the MBACCC organizes an Internal Case Competition for the MBA program. The competition provides students with the opportunity to implement their in-class learnings to solve real-world business problems which are usually provided by the sponsors of the competition. The competition also presents networking opportunities for the students and the sponsors. This year the competition was held on March 12th, 2022.
This year’s competition was sponsored by PMP Strategy, a strategy, development, and transformation consulting firm with 5 offices in Europe, North America, and Africa. (https://pmpstrategy.com/). The daylong event took place in the JMSB MB building and concluded with a networking cocktail at the Sir Winston Churchill Pub. This weeklong event began with the 8 participating teams receiving a case mandate from PMP Strategy:
How to leverage omnichannel strategies to help Wawanesa Insurance successfully re-enter the Quebec market?
The event consisted of a preliminary round and final round with 2 teams advancing to the finals (there were also honourable mentions for second place teams in each division.) The winners were announced at the cocktail event and all the participants, the MBACCC members, judges, and sponsors had a great networking session afterwards.
