Apply to be on the Simon Fraser University Intercollegiate Marketing Competition (SFU-IMC) 2012 Team!
The Intercollegiate Marketing Competition (IMC) is an annual marketing business case competition hosted by the SFU Beedie School of Business. Currently the largest marketing case competition in Western Canada, it has recently expanded into an international competition, encompassing universities from the United States of America.
This two-day competition, to be held in early March 2012, is designed not only to challenge applicants, but also acts as a risk-free opportunity allowing these future leaders to display their talents in formulating implementable solutions to contemporary business issues. Similar to other case competitions, teams are given a business case to analyze. You will have three hours to read the case, determine your recommendations, and create a PowerPoint presentation. IMC has two rounds: a preliminary round and a final round. All teams will present during the preliminary round. The top four teams will present again to a new set of judges in the final round.
The SFU IMC is a great way to build your presentation skills, earn case competition experience, and have the opportunity to represent the Sauder School of Business. All BCom students with any background and experience level are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have some or all of the following characteristics:
– Strong time management skills
– Willing to accept and apply feedback
– Team player
– Analytical skills
– Case competition experience an asset, but not required
To apply, please prepare the following:
– A one-page resume outlining your experiences
– A one-page cover letter outlining why you want to be a part of SFU-IMC 2012
– An unofficial copy of your transcript
– Your term two schedule. Please note any work and/or other commitments.
All materials need to be submitted to Chad Embree, Head Coach for SFU IMC 2012, via firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 12 by 6pm. Early applicants may be granted an interview prior to the application deadline but will not be given selection preference.
