The John Molson MBA International Case Competition (MBA ICC website) is a joining of the business community. Whether you’re looking to gain experience, compete or network, there are many exciting opportunities to get involved.

Organizing team

The organizing team is composed of five (5) organizers and four (4) executive assistants. Each member is responsible for predetermined tasks, ex: Sponsorships, Marketing, Schools, Volunteers, IT, Logistics, Judges, Events and Sustainability. The event requires nearly one year of planning whereby student organizers have the support of an academic advisor and an advisory board composed of CEOs, presidents, chairmen and vice-presidents of major multinational corporations. Organizing the MBA ICC is a fantastic way to sharpen your skills in a non-academic environment. Executive Assistants obtain 3 credits through MBA 657: MBA ICC EA, whereas organizers obtain 6 credits as part of the MBA 659: MBA ICC Organizers.

Competing team

A team of four (4) students from the John Molson MBA program will represent Concordia at the event. They will showcase their presentation abilities and problem-solving skills to a real-life and fast-paced competition. The format is a round-robin tournament consisting of seven unpublished business cases which are selected from among the top entries from the annual Case Writing Competition. The highlight of the week is a live case presentation by a major company facing a real-life business challenge. Students train for a minimum of four months prior to the event and are selected from the MANA 659: Strategies in Action Course.


Each year, the organizing team recruits approximately 400 volunteers to assist in running the event. We encourage all Concordia students to volunteer, and welcome volunteers from outside the university. Volunteering represents a great networking opportunity and puts you in direct contact with corporate executives and visiting MBA candidates from around the globe. Learn more about volunteering.
