Next Up: ICBC Recruiting
If you’re completing third or fourth year of your studies at Sprott, we invite you to submit your name for consideration for the 2013-2014 Inter-Collegiate Business Competition.
Hosted by Queen’s University, ICBC is the one of the oldest and most prestigious undergraduate case competitions in Canada, offering outstanding opportunities for networking and job placement. It begins with a Preliminary Round in October consisting of a written case analysis; top teams move on to a Final Round in January. In 2013, teams representing Sprott brought home first place in Management Information Systems and second place in Accounting.
Sprott will be entering five teams in this year’s competition:
• Business policy (strategy) – Team of 3
• Accounting – Team of 2
• Finance – Team of 2
• Marketing – Team of 2
• MIS – Team of 2
Team selection will take place in May, with training (in-person or online, depending on student / faculty availability) throughout the summer.
About Case Competitions
Case competitions challenge students to work collaboratively to identify and tackle the issues raised by a case. Teams have a limited amount of time to review the history and data provided, analyze strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and present strategic alternatives and recommendations to address the organization’s needs.
As part of its commitment to producing outstanding leaders and decision-makers, the Sprott School of Business is proud to coordinate Sprott Competes, a comprehensive program that gives our students experience in real-world business analysis, decision-making and presentation. We also train and support teams of students to compete in a select number of academic case competitions around the world, across a range of business disciplines.
