News Release Release Date: January 7, 2013 3:00 p.m.

Teams from the Paul J. Hill School of Business excelled again in the Inter-Collegiate Business Competition (ICBC) held at Queens University, in Kingston, Ontario on January 4 and 5.

The human resources team finished third overall out of 18 university teams that competed in the human resources event. First and second place went to McGill and the University of British Columbia, respectively.

Now in its 35th year, the ICBC is Canada’s premiere undergraduate business case competition. Students can compete in Accounting, Business Policy, Ethics, Debate, Finance, Human Resources, Marketing and Management of Information systems.

“The ICBC offers a unique opportunity for challenging experiential learning for our students. Each year teams from the Paul J. Hill School of Business place among the top national and international universities,” said Andrew Gaudes, Dean of Business Administration at the University of Regina. 

In all, teams from 38 universities from Canada and abroad entered this year’s competition. Each team was required to submit a written case analysis in the fall of 2012. Based on the quality of these analyses and recommendations, faculty judges from the Queen’s School of Business selected the top five or six teams to enter the final round in each category.

Teams from the University of Regina made it to the final round in three categories (Debate, Human Resources and Marketing) placing the University of Regina among the top six universities in the competition.

Six students from the Paul J. Hill School of Business participated in the finals: Natasha Berriault, Leah Cameron, Courtney Kozakewycz, Megan Kusisto, Taylor Mountain and Celine Raisbeck. The teams are grateful for the sponsorship of Chartered Management Accountants of Canada (Saskatchewan).

"It made me proud to represent the University of Regina knowing that I had been given the skills to compete against the top students from across Canada and the rest of the world. The opportunity to network with big name companies and the advice I was given by such influential business people are experiences that you can't get in a classroom," said Leah Cameron.
