MBA games logoIn the year of ‘88, the prestigious annual event that would come to become known by all Canadian MBA candidates as MBA Games, was born. Originating at Queen’s University, MBA Games is a world class three day event with over 20 participating Canadian MBA schools and 700 plus participants, making it the largest annual MBA gathering in the country.

Over the three day event, teams representing their respective schools’ compete in the categories of academics, athletics, and spirit. The winning team takes home the renowned Queen’s Cup and is given the honour of hosting MBA Games the following year.

For general information about the competition, visit the MBA Games website.

MBA Games 2017 will host four business cases, with past subject topics such as Marketing, Strategy, Finance, Human Resources, Sustainability and Accounting. The 2017 MBA Games subject topics will be released in Fall 2016. Case materials will be developed with strategic partners and give MBA students the opportunity to solve problems that will have a positive impact on businesses and communities across Canada.


Featuring four athletic competitions, MBA Games 2017 will emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork. Schools will compete against each other with passion and integrity, with the aim of building long lasting relationships through sport.


MBA Games 2017 will encourage teams to express the spirit of their own school while embodying a spirit of collaboration with other schools to foster relationships and develop a sense of community among Canadian MBA students. A key component of the spirit competition will involve raising money for a selected national charity to inspire teams to have a direct impact in their respective communities.
