2013 Event to be the Most International Ever

From January 6 to 11, Queen’s School of Business will join 35 schools from around the world in Montreal at the John Molson MBA International Case Competition. The competition, the oldest and largest of its kind in the world, is organized by MBA students from Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business.

This year’s event will have the greatest number of international competitors in the competition’s history. In addition to the seven American and 12 Canadian universities participating, there will be 17 International schools from 14 countries and five continents. Australia, Egypt and South Africa will be represented for the first time.

Queen’s School of Business will be sending their five best case-cracking MBA candidates who will, over six days, tackle seven business case studies, including one “live” case study. The live case will see a surprise company present a problem they are currently facing to the teams, who will then present their solutions. The teams will compete to take home the Concordia Cup and up to $10,000 in prize money.

This year’s organizers have brought the business and academic worlds closer by recruiting 350 volunteers from Montreal’s universities and over 250 judges from the Montreal business community.

QSB has five full-time MBA students representing Queen’s at the competition; Josh Hutchings, James Kesten, Lindsey Lachance, Matthew Parker-Jones and Michal Dabrowski. Shai Dubey, the program Director will be their coach for the week.
