Today’s MBA student is full of a contagious, positive spirit, brimming with confidence and motivation.
The annual Canadian MBA Games embrace and celebrate this spirit. More than just fun and play, university students compete in academic, athletic, and spirit competitions, while networking with fellow MBA students from across the country. The experience strives to inspire participants to take action and drive positive change, while providing opportunities to challenge one-self and develop as a leader.
Dalhousie’s Rowe School of Business exceled at this year’s MBA Games hosted by the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University in Hamilton. Fifteen students from the Corporate Residency MBA program spent the first weekend of 2013 competing against over 600 of their peers in everything from finance to dodgeball.
Dalhousie team members Rebecca Rogez, Jennifer Jackson, Eric Dunford and Kyle Palantzas placed first in the Crisis Management Case Competition. Small but mighty, the team also brought home the “Mini Cup”, an award given to the team with the most points per capita. Other milestones included winning the Spirit Award at the opening ceremonies, competing in the final round in both finance and marketing, and an overall third place finish in the academic category.
