About the Alberta Deans of Business Case Competition
Chiu School of Business students must perform well within their regular coursework to be given the opportunity to join our team. We have consistently fielded strong teams that are highly competitive and our learners have been great ambassadors representing our college. Thanks to Bart Chudleigh and Jeff Kawalilak, BVC faculty advisors, who continual coach an outstanding team.
14th Annual Competition: March 2019
This year's case study had 14 teams assessing technology in the construction industry, before presenting to a panel of judges in Edmonton. The team had to think "outside the box" and they presented a completely different recommendation than all the other teams. We are proud of their efforts and their commitment to the team, their coaches, and the CSB.
