Getting involved in Sprott Competes can begin as soon as your campus life starts and continue even past your graduation. Getting involved while you are in your undergraduate program can be a rich and rewarding experience. Involvement in case competitions is a great addition to any resume. Sprott Competes will also be officially noted on your Carleton co-curricular record.
First and Second Years
First and second year students can get their feet wet in the case competition program in a number of different ways. The Skill-Building Workshops offered through the Sprott Business Students Society (SBSS) or getting involved in DECA Carleton are two excellent options to get started in case competitions. We also recommend that you plan ahead and ensure that BUSI 3800 is a top priority for your course selection in third year!
DECA Carleton is a student club designed to help Carleton students get involved and learn the basics of case competitions. Participants include a mix of Sprott students and other Carleton students of all years. Members of DECA compete and attend conferences at the provincial and international levels.
Third and Fourth Years
Third and fourth year students have an amazing opportunity to be involved in Sprott Competes. Once you have completed or are registered in BUSI 3800, you can sign up to apply for any of the competitions. Check out our Competition Opportunities to find out more about our competitions.
Business Case competitions can enhance your experience at Sprott as they are a fantastic learning opportunity and can help you to stand out in the job market. The MBA competitions teams are organized through the MBA Association. These are outstanding networking and social events, that are restricted to students enrolled in a Canadian MBA program.
The gateway to participating in student case competitions on the graduate level is BUSI 5106.
This year, Sprott Competes will be sending students to the MBA Games in Toronto, Ontario at the Schulich School of Business.
We love to have our Sprott Competes alumni back to help our current competitors. You provide valuable insight as to what it means to be at a competition that is important to share with our new cohort. If you are interested in mentoring a team, or judging tryouts or an internal competition, please contact us at email@example.com.
We also welcome Sprott alumni who weren’t part of a case competition to help out our current students as mentors or practice judges. We would be happy to talk with you about your experience and how you might help our teams train.
If you are interested in getting to know students who are both academically strong and who also have great presentation, teamwork and leadership skills, being involved with Sprott Competes is the answer! You could judge our tryouts or an internal competition. Alternatively, we could pair a Sprott Competes team up with a coach/mentor from your organization.
We are also looking for sponsors to support our program – both sponsors of the overall Sprott Competes program as well as team sponsors for specific competitions. Sponsorship benefits can include website advertisement, swag advertisement, and networking events with the Sprott Competes Teams. We can work with you to build a sponsorship package that fits your business.
On November 29, 2016, Sprott Competes is hosting a special event to allow industry representatives to meet our amazing Sprott Competes students and to thank those who have been involved in the program in the past. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
