L-R Edwards MBA Candidates: Nicole Adams, Christianne Blais, Tate Cao and Troy Shapley

Team Edwards heads to the MBA Games

This weekend a team of four students from Edwards School of Business will be competing in the 2018 MBA games in Ottawa, Ontario.

Hosted by the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa, the event brings 700 MBA students together from across the country.

Now in its 30th year, the three-day event is an opportunity for business students of all different backgrounds and home schools to come together and compete in events that test their academic acumen, athletic prowess and team spirit for a chance at the prize: the Queen’s Cup.

Nicole Adams, Christianne Blais, Tate Cao and Troy Shapley will be representing Edwards at the event.

The students will be challenged to incorporate diversity and inclusion as part of the overall theme of the competition; ‘More Together.’ The theme implies striving to work in diverse and inclusive environments creates more innovation through diverse perspectives, work experiences, lifestyles and cultures.

A big focus of the competition was also fundraising, with each competing school encouraged to raise money for the Moose Hide Campaign. The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children.

Special thanks to Edwards School of Business and ISAAC for financial support.

Congratulations and good luck to our Edwards students!
