(SAULT STE. MARIE, ON- March 6th, 2019): Join the Algoma University Business Society (AUBS) this Friday, March 8th, 2019, from 9AM-5PM in the Speakeasy for the first annual AUBS Internal Student Case Competition. This unique event will involve second and third-year Business students who will analyze a case and present their solutions to judging panels made up of Algoma University faculty and local business partners.
This event was created by fourth-year Business students to help their second and third-year classmates gain insight into the process of a case competition and what they will face in their final year. First-year students will be volunteering throughout the day, while fourth-year students will serve as mentors.
“This event will help prepare students for their fourth-year final case competition,” said Courtney Dukes, AUBS VP of Events and Conferences and fourth-year Human Resources and Marketing student, BBA program. “I would have loved to have an opportunity to experience what case competitions were like in my 2nd or 3rd year, and events like this help bridge the gap for current students. They will gain insight into how case competitions work, and integrate experiential learning into their curriculum.”
“I am thrilled to witness the initiative taken by our students to create such unique learning opportunities for their peers, and themselves,” shared Academic Dean Donna Rogers. “Events like this showcase that our commitment to experiential learning is present at every stage of a student’s academic career, and I can’t wait to see what the students come up with.”
All participants and guests are invited to an awards ceremony/networking hour from 4-5 PM following judging at the Arthur Wishart Library. If there are any students in need of volunteer hours and would like to assist at this event, please email [email protected].
