26th John Molson MBA International Case Competition

Concordia University in Canada every year conducts "the world's oldest, largest and most prestigious business case competition of its kind" called the John Molson MBA International Case Competition.

36 teams from all over the world were there ( IIMB represented India!). It is a 5 day event and the teams undergoe a battery of case contests before the final three teams are selected. A team from Queen's had worked very hard but could not make it into the winners list.Yet, they enjoyed the experience and had loads of fun. The above picture clearly displays the team spirit that we develop at Queen's.

As for the case competition, the first prize was secured byUniversité Laval. Second position went to HEC Montreal and the third position to Universitdt Paderborn.

Interestingly, the finals involved the teams presenting a strategic growth solution to a business case for Research in Motion ( BlackBerry) for its entry into the Chinese market.Knowing that China is a competetive and booming market, it would be interesting to know if RIM goes on to folllow the winning strategy!

Nice Post Bis. It was great to see "you are still winners in our hearts" message from the class. Speaks volumes about the attitude of the team.

Here we can possibly watch about more of the possible instances and values which would help students in initiating all those values which are even said to be of utmost importance.
