Students will assemble a four-person team that will compete in a simulated business scenario. Each student will assume the responsibility for a specific role in their business, including VP of Human Resources, VP of Finance, VP of Operations, and VP of Marketing. One student will also assume the role of the team’s CEO -thus, one student will take on the responsibility of two roles: CEO and VP of an overall area of business. Teams will have approximately 4 weeks to practice the simulation before the competition begins.
The competition consists of two parts: a preliminary stage and an intensive weekend. During the preliminary stage, competitors will submit their strategic plan and complete the first simulation round. The intensive weekend begins when competitors register at check-in. Over the duration of the weekend, teams will take part in simulation rounds two to eight, and will be prepared to present their results to their board of directors (judges). There will be team presentations to the board of directors on Saturday and Sunday.
During the intensive weekend, students will have several opportunities to network with fellow competitors, judges, and event sponsors. The competition weekend will kick off with a reception on Friday evening, located at the Best Western Plus Kelowna. Day two, competitors will have the opportunity to take off on an executive retreat Saturday evening to Kelowna’s prestigious Harvest Golf Club. The competition weekend caps off with an Awards Banquet on Sunday evening, where awards will be presented to the top teams.
