The John Molson School of Business proposes innovative educational practices that combine traditional classroom learning with real-life knowledge application. Business case competitions offer an enriching opportunity to integrate these two educational elements.
Recognized worldwide for their ability to analyze and provide solutions to complex business problems, John Molson undergraduate and graduate students both host and attend case competitions.
John Molson faculty members also write and publish cases and include case methodology in their teachings.
MBA International Case Competition (MBA-ICC)
The John Molson School of Business hosts the oldest and most prestigious business case competition in the world, and welcomes 36 teams of MBA students from across the globe.
Donate to enhance the quality of the competition at this annual event held on campus in January or to help send our finest graduate business students to external competitions.
The case competition program at the John Molson School of Business started in 1982, and has become an integral part of our identity as a leading-edge international business school.
The successes of our hosted competitions, and our performance at competitions around the world, are unequaled. The undergraduate team reached the podium (1st, 2nd and/or 3rd place) 50 times in academic competitions and another 8 times in non-academic events, while last year the MBA delegate teams reached the podium a total of 6 times in 9 external competitions.
Along with sending delegates to national and international competitions, John Molson hosts two annual case competitions:
Both are considered the largest, best managed and most prestigious competitions in their respective categories and are attended by schools from all over the world.
Students benefit greatly from participating either as members of the planning committee or as a delegate. They are exposed to practical training, have a chance to network with peers from across the globe and to discover new career opportunities.
The program offers the ultimate university learning experience for John Molson students and enhances the school's reputation worldwide.
John Molson Undergraduate Case Competition Program (JMUCC)
This annual, multi-round case competition, organized by a committee of undergraduate John Molson School students takes place in the heart of downtown Montreal, and challenges twenty-eight international teams from renowned business schools.
Donate to support this annual event held on campus in March or to help send our finest undergrad business students to external competitions.
In the ever-increasing competitive landscape of business schools, John Molson’s reputation as a case competition school has become one of our strongest differentiators. The successes of our hosted competitions, and our performance at competitions around the world, are unequaled.
Case competitions represent one of the most impactful experiential learning opportunities for our students and we want to continue to provide more students the opoortunities to participate and represent John Molson on the international stage.
As sponsorship and other funding is increasingly more difficult to secure, philanthropic support from our alumni and community will help us continue to be a leader in case competitions and grow both our hosted competitions as well as ensuring more students can compete and learn through cases.
