Celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, I.C.B.C. is Canada’s largest and oldest business case competition. Over 100 competitors from Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Norway, Spain and the U.S. took part in eight academic case events. In the preliminary round, teams submitted a written case analysis. The top six teams in each category were invited to the finals, where they received a new case and had five and a half hours to analyze and prepare their presentation.
