Taking place January 2020, the MBA Games will bring together over 650 MBA students from over 20 Canadian institutions. Participants compete in 4 disciplines: finance, strategy, marketing, and a wildcard; the academics are also complemented with sporting events. This year’s host is The DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
The games offer competitors exceptional opportunities to represent Carleton on a national stage, build critical skills through real-life business simulations, and develop a network within the Canadian MBA community.
The 2019 Games had Sprott at the forefront, winning the Marketing category and making the playoffs in all sports disciplines. The team is looking to secure an overall win for 2020 in order to be granted the opportunity to host the games at Carleton during the inaugural year of the Nicol Building.
The 2020 Games are approaching in January. The captains are reaching out to local and global companies to establish partnerships, recruit coaches, and connect top competitors with recruitment efforts. Teams will be formed and competitors will prepare for the undertaking through weekly practices and target training sessions.
Students who compete learn invaluable things about themselves, and the business environment. This program will impact not only the school but also all the individuals putting in countless hours to make it happen.
Funds are used to subsidize registration fees, transportation, and case materials. Every dollar donated brings the team one step closer to being able to send a full delegation and work towards the ultimate goal of a first overall finish.
Thank you for your support!
