Summary for 2021

MBA Case Competition Committee (MBACCC)

For the MBA Case Competition Committee (MBACCC), 2021 continued to present unique challenges and opportunities. COVID-19 had required the MBACCC, like many organizations, to upheave its operations and processes from previous years. The aim for 2021 was to extend a feeling of community to the rest of the MBA program while maintaining the case competition culture. To achieve this, the MBACCC focused on maintaining its high level of participation, adapted its learning platforms to virtual environments, found new events to attend, offered more small group personalized sessions and new ways to support our students .

The MBACCC quickly and successfully pivoted and adapted its in-person events to a virtual format, and ultimately built closer communication channels with both the incoming and returning cohorts to successfully execute events. This hard work paid off and the MBACCC achieved stellar results at MBA competitions.

John Molson Competition Committee (JMCC)

For the 2021 calendar year, the John Molson Competition Committee demonstrated the dedication and resilience of our students. As with most of competition programs internationally, our competitions and operations were impacted by COVID-19. Students needed to adapt to an online format and to constantly changing demands. We shifted to a completely virtual recruitment approach, which totalled 100 hours of tryouts, to form a delegation of 160 students. JMCC also benefited by the support of 104 coaches, 20 executives and 2200+ volunteer hours. This past year also saw the creation of a virtual classroom and case preparation platform. Creative solutions and initiatives were implemented to work with sponsors and to train and compete internationally. Some of these consisted of mandatory training on diversity and inclusion, skills workshops, and creating sustainable gear for our students to represent the university. In addition, the JMCC Bursary Fund was founded, providing 121 bursaries for students who do not have the means to compete. Despite the constant shift in deliverables, our students exceeded all our expectations by not only adapting to the everchanging needs of competitions, but by having a phenomenal year.

This dedication proved to be very fruitful. In fact, 2020/2021 was one of the best years the committee has dad to date in terms of podium and academic accolades. We attended 17 competitions and reached the podium 52 times. This is a true testament to the strength and the caliber of our students.
