On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, six students in Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business PhD in Management program took part in the National Capital Region Thesis Competition and Poster Session, hosted by the University of Ottawa. In addition to Sprott, graduate students from the Telfer School of Management and the University of Quebec in Outaouais participated in the competition.

The competition is designed to provide a unique opportunity for business students in the National Capital Region to feature an aspect of their research that is innovative, from the perspective of business transformation. Students were given 10 minutes to present their thesis followed by a question and answer period, with poster sessions in between presentations.

From the Sprott School of Business, three students were selected as winners. Vivi Zhang won 2nd place in the oral presentations, taking home $1,500. Steven Guo and Nada Elnahla won 2nd and 3rd place in the poster session, taking home $300 and $200 each.

Congratulations to our Sprott PhD students for their hard work and participation in the third annual thesis competition program for universities in the National Capital Region.
