Samer Balaghi, Christopher Carpini, Kirsten Law and Catherine Richard represented Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) at this year’s International Case Competition @ Maastricht (ICC@M) in the Netherlands.
ICC@M is very similar to JMSB’s own John Molson Undergraduate Case Competition. The event brings together 64 talented undergraduate students from 16 schools from around the world to compete in a week-long case competition.
The competition consisted of two cases (worth 20% each) that allowed for three hours of preparation each, and a more involved case (worth 60%), for which teams had 24 hours to prepare. Teams were divided into four divisions and competed against every team within their division.
After three rounds of presentations, the finalists were chosen based on the number of points they had accumulated, with the highest-scoring teams in each division presenting another three-hour case. The JMSB team was beaten in the final round, finishing in fourth place overall.
The final rankings were:
- National University of Singapore
- University of Hong Kong
- University of Toronto, Rotman School of Business
The John Molson Competition Committee would like to thank coaches Peter Vogopoulos, Tim Field, Matthew Parker-Jones and Cleo Roch, as well as Mark Haber, head coach and Advisor to the Competition Program, for bringing the team to a level that impressed people from all over the world.
The team would also like to express its deepest gratitude to exclusive sponsor Pfizer Canada for their support and encouragement of the case competition program.
