On January 2nd, a team of Telfer MBA students traveled to Hamilton, Ontario to compete in the 2015 MBA Games. The Games are a great opportunity to meet and compete with MBA students from across the country, and Telfer was well-represented amongst tomorrow’s leaders in Business.
Telfer’s MBA gamers put their best feet forward during their dance at the opening ceremonies: showing off their passion with salsa-like moves as a unified group, inspiring achievements with on-stage board-breaking, and creating a sense of community with their coordinated team effort.
Students competing in academic case competitions seized the opportunity to demonstrate their business expertise in finance, human resources, marketing, and strategy. Although the teams didn’t move on to the final rounds of the competitions, each group felt confident in their analyses and are ready to take their experiences and acquired skills back to the classrooms at the University of Ottawa and into the broader world of work.
The Telfer participants also displayed their skills in teamwork throughout the various sports competitions over the weekend. This was particularly evident in their succeeding in moving through the first elimination round in basketball. The team rallied together to help one another learn new skills and develop strategies against some particularly challenging and experienced groups. Many Telfer students were playing these competitive sports for the first time, and their positivity and willingness to take up a new challenge displayed their venturesome spirits.
The Games also included a number of spirit activities and networking events that helped the Telfer participants build stronger bonds with one another and with competitors from other Canadian programs. From meet-and-greets to karaoke, and from dinner parties to dance parties, Telfer’s MBA students were stellar representatives of the Telfer School of Business, displaying excellence in teamwork, leadership, and engagement.
The 26th MBA games took place at York University’s Schulich school of management in Toronto Ontario. Telfer fielded an enthusiastic team of 40 students to compete in academic and sporting events. Details regarding the games can be found at www.mbagames.ca.
The 25th MBA games took place at the University of McMaster’s DeGroote School of Business in Hamilton/Burlington, Ontario.
