John Molson MBA International Case Competition
(Montréal, Québec, January 7-11, 2019)
Challengers arrived from around the world, and only one team from North America landed on the podium: the DeGroote School of Business. DeGroote MBA candidates earned an impressive third-place finish at the 2019 John Molson MBA International Case Competition in Montréal. The format includes a round-robin tournament consisting of seven unpublished business cases, including a live case presentation by a major company facing a real-life business challenge. The annual affair is one of the largest and oldest academic tournaments of its kind in the world. This year’s competition attracted 36 teams from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Nanyang Business School (Singapore) placed first overall, while the Lund School of Economics and Management (Sweden) finished in second place.

I was honoured to be a member of the 2019 JMICC team. It was a personal capstone of my MBA, and offered a chance for us to prove to ourselves and to the business community what we had learned throughout our time at DeGroote.
