The Fund can be used for any of the following purposes:

  • Major national and international conferences, competitions and events with a budget over $20,000, organized and hosted by DeGroote students. For example: MBA DeGroote Case Competition.
  • National and international case competitions hosted by other schools or organizations in which teams of DeGroote students compete. First consideration goes to competitions with a long history of DeGroote participation. For example: John Molson MBA Case Competition or Manitoba International Marketing Case Competition.
  • External competitions, conferences and extra-curricular activities that complement in-class learning, undertaken by teams or individual students. For example: MBA Games or JDCC.

The DeGroote Experience Committee — including the Associate Dean-Undergraduate Programs, MBA Director and the Director Student Experience — evaluates written requests as they come in, and provides funding where applicable.
