Algoma University School of Business and Economics- Northern Ontario Business Case Competition (NOBCC) 2019
This week, the 13th annual Northern Ontario Business Case Competition is taking place at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn in Sault Ste. Marie.
Students from across Ontario come together for this intense one-day event in which they are given an unknown business case, overhead transparencies, markers, and calculators. With no access to electronics or internet, these students are isolated in a room for three hours where they must prepare a thorough solution to the business case which is then presented to a panel of judges comprised of local and regional business professionals. After the presentations, the judges evaluate the teams’ solutions and are free to challenge the students with questions or concerns.
A dinner will follow with all competition participants and guests from the business community. Afterwards, celebrity judges will participate in a panel discussion with dinner attendants. To conclude the evening, an awards ceremony, where the winning teams (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) will be announced.
