Make a Global Impact with the John Molson MBA ICC Case Writing Competition!

The 2022 organising team is pleased to invite you to submit your original business cases for this year’s e-ICC, the virtual edition of the John Molson MBA International Case Competition (ICC).

Though the competition will look different this year, John Molson are extremely proud to host and celebrate its continued success.

The 2022 e-ICC cases should be focused on business and/or corporate strategy and decision-making. Case writers are encouraged to submit cases that deal with any business discipline, including strategy, finance, sustainability, entrepreneurship, e-commerce etc. It should be noted that writers need to base their cases on issues other than COVID-19. Considerations around COVID-19 and its impact will inevitably factor into many cases, but COVID-19 should not drive the case.

The ability and preparedness of our students to crack a variety of cases from different disciplines will define their careers and their contributions to both their enterprises and the world around them.

The competition will be held from January 3-8, 2022 with students presenting from their respective locations via Zoom to panels of live judges in Montreal. It will unite 36 teams of students from different MBA programmes around the globe to compete for the Concordia Cup.

Up to six cases will be selected for use during the competition.

Lazaridis International Case Competition

Submission deadline: 30 December of each year

This is a week-long competition that invites 16 to 20 universities from around the world and combines learning, competing and networking. There's a five hour and 24 hour case in addition to social activities. 

A differentiator of this competition is the education day, where students learn the latest insights on how technology is changing industries, and the latest strategies and solutions being used to respond.

The tech-theme extends to the cases, as they’re on mainstream business issues but are either technology companies or technology strategy questions i.e. executing an e-commerce strategy, or safeguarding from disruption. 

The deadline has passed for the 2021 edition but interested parties can get in touch with scarayannopoulos@wlu.ca and be added to a waiting list.
