Schulich Wins “School of the Year” at JDCC
A team of 52 undergraduate Schulich students recently competed in the 2022 Jeux du Commerce Central (JDCC). The delegation delivered a ground-breaking performance – with 17 podium finishes across categories such as debate, finance, and business strategy – and secured the coveted ‘School of the Year’ title for the first time.
JDCC is the largest undergraduate business school competition in Central Canada with more than 600 student delegates from Ontario, Québec and the Maritimes. Lasting three days each winter, it is a multi-faceted competition including academic cases for eight business disciplines, parliamentary style debates, e-sports tournaments, social challenges, and charity contributions.
Notably, the Schulich team outperformed in the competition’s charity division. The team came 1st the Charity Consulting Project, volunteered over 1,000 hours, and raised over $2,500.
Schulich’s 2022 JDCC delegation was led by Co-Captains Nain Mehta and Nathan Corbett (BBA Candidates ’22). Faculty Advisor Kevin Lyons (MBA ’99) coached the students.
“I can’t say enough about how hard the team worked this year, despite lockdowns and disruptions, to deliver an exemplary performance,” said Lyons. “Their efforts were supported by many alumni from years past making this win a shared victory across multiple generations of participants.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of the team and the positive culture for continuous improvement they promote. Congrats again Team Schulich for an outstanding event!”
