Team Schulich Places Second in MBA Games
Our MBA Games team, better known as Team Schulich, represented our School at the annual MBA games this past weekend.
The event, which first began at Queen’s University in 1988, features teams from MBA programs across Canada competing in athletic, academic and spirit challenges for the Queen’s Cup. This year’s event had four case competitions, four sporting events and five spirit events, held by the Ted Rogers School of Management and featured 19 other Canadian business schools.
In every category, the other schools put so much pressure on, and drove Schulich team members to dig deep and bring out their best. “From beginning to end, they worked extremely hard, were 100% committed, and did everything they could to prepare,” shared Marketing professor, Joe Fayt. “And I was even more proud of how they carried themselves at the Games. They represented Schulich in the best possible way.”
The team ranked first place overall in the Spirit category. “We had countless staff members, sponsors, volunteers, and opposing team captains approach us throughout the weekend to say that our team were collectively some of the most honourable individuals they have ever met,” said Joseph Flagler, Executive Director of Athletics for the Graduate Business Council and Captain of Team Schulich.
“You have gone above and beyond in creating an inclusive and celebratory atmosphere through your events, fundraising and social media activities,” said Dean Horváth to Fayt and Team Schulich.
We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Team Schulich! You have made the whole community very proud.
