On January 3rd, 2015 McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business is hosting the 2015 MBA Games, which is anticipated to have approximately 700 MBA students from more than 20 business schools across Canada participating in events in Hamilton and Burlington. The academic component of the games involves four business cases, spread throughout the weekend. Typically, these cases are real business challenges faced by real organizations. Teams from each school usually have three hours to develop a solution and present it to a panel of judges.
This year, the City of Hamilton’s Economic Development office has led the implementation of an innovative twist to the case competition process by developing a creativity and strategy based case that was sent to the teams a month before the competition. The case focuses on choosing one of Hamilton’s key industry sectors and creating a strategy for promoting investment by the kinds of organizations that will encourage young professionals to live and work in the city. The competitors will present their solutions on January 3 at City Hall to a panel of Hamilton business professionals and city officials.
There are currently a couple of judging positions available. If you are interested in participating in the judging of this young professional focused case competition, please forward the following information to email@example.com by 4:00pm on Thursday December 18th :
1. A current resume/CV;
2. A couple sentences on why you are interested volunteering as a judge and the value/perspective that you would bring to the judging process; and
3. A confirmation of your availability between the time of 7:30am-1:30pm and/or 12:00pm and 6:00pm.
