• Schulich International Case Competition (SICC)

    The seventh annual Schulich International Case Competition will be held at Schulich’s new Rob and Cheryl McEwen Graduate Study & Research Building on February 23, 2019.

    The competition provides students with the opportunity to discuss real-life business challenges, bringing together practical solutions to the industry’s most difficult problems. Focused on sustainable value creation in mining, we’re about pitching real solutions to current industry leaders.

    New this year, SICC will be holding an industry fair: The Mine of the Future, in partnership with Net Impact Schulich. We are excited to host a variety of companies from progressive start-ups to industry leaders across the mining innovation community.

    SICC is a unique opportunity to engage with industry leaders, stakeholders, and students, to help shape the future of the mining industry. Register today!

  • Teams interested in participating must be comprised of two to four students. While the majority of the team should consist of students enrolled in an MBA program, undergraduate or graduate students in sustainability, business, natural resources or engineering programs are encouraged and welcome to enter the competition.


  • “It’s a very challenging time in the history of the mining sector due to the increasingly complex social, environmental and political climates worldwide. The focus of SICC is to tackle those challenges head on by seeking the advice and recommendations of the brightest and best MBA students globally.”
