Business students from the University of Regina continue to demonstrate they are among the best in western Canada.

Nearly 650 students from 12 of western Canada’s top universities recently travelled to Victoria, B.C., to compete in the 2015 JDC West business case competition. JDC West is a student-run competition providing opportunities for business students in western Canada to achieve excellence in academics, social responsibility, sporting, and social competitions.

The Paul J. Hill School of Business team placed third in both School of the Year and Academic School of the Year categories. The Hill team placed in the top three as School of the Year seven times in the 10-year history of the competition, more than any other competing school.

University of Regina teams placed first in Business Strategy, Debate, Participation, Most Volunteer Hours, and Most Money Raised for local charities, and second in Finance.

“Students are presented with business case situations where they must prepare solutions under pressure of time and present to a jury of academic and professional experts in specialized areas,” said Dr. Andrew Gaudes, Dean of Business Administration at the University of Regina. “The final placements at JDC West are an incredible feat to attain year over year.”

Next year’s competition will be held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
