The fourth annual John Molson Undergraduate Case Competition (JMUCC) will be held from February 19 to 25 at the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure.

The competition, named the Undergraduate National Case Competition in 2008 and earlier, is run entirely by students in the John Molson School of Business (JMSB) and is supported by a board of directors composed of executives from the Montreal corporate community.

The judges for the event are also local business people. This offers the undergraduate participants a rare opportunity to get feedback on their performance from professionals in the field.

JMUCC is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious international case competitions at the undergraduate level. The business schools of 24 universities from around the world will be sending delegations to this year’s event. Among them will be the American University in Cairo, University of Navarra (Spain), University of São Paulo (Brazil), HEC Montréal and the Dublin Institute of Technology (Ireland).

“Part of JMSB’s mission is to educate students to become responsible global citizens and to create a learning environment that responds to the needs of the global economy,” says JMSB Interim Dean Alan Hochstein. “The international nature of this event helps serve that mission. We look forward to welcoming the students and coaches from universities from around the world to our city and to our business school.”

Concordia will, of course, be represented at the competition. The John Molson Competition Committee, led by Head Coach and Advisor Mark Haber, has had a tremendous start to the competition season.

Undergraduate teams representing JMSB had a record year at Queen’s University’s Inter-Collegiate Business Competition with four podium finishes, the most of any university at the competition.

That same weekend, another JMSB delegation won second place overall at the Jeux du commerce, hosted this year by Université Laval.

Additionally, JMSB took the top prize at Ryerson University’s Organizational Behaviour Case Competition for the third year in a row and finished second at the 2012 Financial Open, which was held at Concordia this year.
