Student Case Competition

Case Competitions

Get involved and join a case competition. There are local, national and international competitions to participate in.

This is your opportunity to compete locally and internationally in prestigious case competitions.

There are many benefits to participating in case competitions including the application of your classroom learning, meeting students from other schools, presenting to industry leaders, strengthening your confidence and bolstering your resume. Case competitions are split into two broad categories: core-competitions with teams assembled by a coach and open-competitions with teams organized by interested students. Listen to the case competition podcast here.

Core-competitions: are led by Haskayne coaches, where students compete on a coach-assembled team as a representative of the Haskayne School of Business.

Students that are interested in competing in core-competitions must fill out the application form on Elevate – instructions can be found in the video below. Once you are matched to a suitable upcoming competition you will be contacted. If there is a specific case competition you are most interested in, please indicate it in your application. Please note that students are not guaranteed to be selected for a core-competition. Apply now for the September 2021 – June 2022 competition season.

Open-competitions: can be internal Haskayne competitions or external competitions organized by other schools and organizations. There is typically an individual application process, where any student is encouraged to apply as a team, or as an individual. In these open-competitions, students are not competing as representatives of Haskayne; rather they are competing as individuals, or as representatives of self-assembled teams.

Students that are interested in open-competitions can find an extensive list of available competitions below - coming soon. For these types of competitions, students are encouraged to visit the website of each competition and apply directly.

Important note: due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, in-person competitions may require safety measures such as full vaccination, mask wearing, and social distancing. Each competition may have their own requirements, please be sure to check for detailed instructions.
