Media Advisory Release Date: January 23, 2017 2:30 p.m.

Two students at the Paul J. Hill School of Business came in second in their category at an international university business school competition.

The Inter-Collegiate Business Competition (ICBC) is Canada’s oldest and longest-running undergraduate business case competition, having begun in 1978. Each year students from over 40 Canadian and international business schools take part in this competition that receives over 170 team submissions.

The preliminary round of the competition has students complete a business case analysis. Students have one month to complete their analysis and submit their written recommendations. The cases are then reviewed, and the top six teams from each category are selected and invited to the final round, held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. The final round takes place over two days, during which students have five-and-a-half hours to analyze and prepare a business case to present to a panel of judges.

Since 2010, the Hill School has sent 18 teams to the final round of ICBC, as well as placed in the top six universities three times. 

This year, the Hill team, consisting of Rochelle Berenyi and Seth Tyler, placed second in the final round in the marketing category.
