JMSB Wins Gold at Marketing Happening
6th time in 7 years
March 27-29, 2009 – Congratulations to the 36 undergraduate students who won overall gold at the 17th Edition of Marketing Happening organized by HEC Montreal. This is the 4th consecutive year that JMSB undergrads have won Canada’s most prestigious marketing competition.
Happening Marketing is an inter-university competition which gathers nearly 500 students from over 10 universities in Eastern Canada. Since 1991, students have had the opportunity to meet at this gathering and test their knowledge, skills, creativity and school spirit. Participants measure up against their peers from other universities in academic cases, as well as sport and social activities.
“We are honored to continue JMSB’s excellent track record at Marketing Happening. Our students worked tirelessly before and during the competition; we’re incredibly proud of them. This is just another indicator that JMSB has one of, if not the best, marketing programs in the country.” proudly stated Sarah-Claude Billette, President of the JMSB Marketing Happening Delegation.
