Pilon School of Business Case Competition 2016
“I was impressed with the creative ideas generated and the overall level of professionalism from all of the teams.” – Karen Booth
On March 19th Sheridan College hosted its 4th annual Pilon School of Business case competition at the HMC campus. In teams of two, students were assigned a business case where they were given a period of 48 hours to analyze and build a presentation for a panel of judges. Student’s were given the opportunity to build skills, network and compete. This year we had 15 teams competing in total within the Human Resources and Marketing streams.
Karen Booth – a Program Coordinator at the Pilon School of Business and a Judge during the competition – commented on the competition saying, ” “I really enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the competition as a judge. I was impressed with the creative ideas generated and the overall level of professionalism from all of the teams.” Nicholas Soares who competed in the HR stream noted, “I am impressed with the professionalism of the event, as well as the very diverse and creative strategies used by the all of the finalists. It is a testament to the wealth of knowledge here at Sheridan“.
