• Schulich Undergraduate Case Competition Team

    Case competitions are an integral part of business school – and they’re a lot of fun. As a case team member, you’ll get to travel to new places and meet people from other schools and countries.

    The Schulich Undergraduate Case Competition Team represents the School in regional, national and international competitions. Try-outs are held at the beginning of the academic year, and the team will compete in a roster of case competitions between October to June.

    For undergraduate students who want to compete in case competitions, or simply learn more about how to approach cases, you can still develop your skills without being a member of the team. MKTG 3150: Business Case Analysis and Presentation Skills Development will help you learn how to structure your case competition submission(s) and how to present the material effectively.

 
  • How to Get Involved

    Tryouts for the FW 2024-2025 team will be taking place in April 2024. Additional details will be emailed to students who have expressed interest here.

    If you are interested in joining the Winter 2024 team, please contact Nour Nassif, Program Director, at nnassif@schulich.yorku.ca.

    All current undergraduate students are welcome to try out for the case team by expressing their interest here.

    You’ll be added to an e-mail distribution list to receive additional details.

    Students who elect to not participate in the Undergraduate Case Competition Team, but simply want coaching for a specific competition are encouraged to contact Nour Nassif, Program Director, at nnassif@schulich.yorku.ca to see if to see if there is any support that can be provided to help them compete more effectively as representatives of Schulich.
