An Experience to Remember
During October of 2018, the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics welcomed nine academic teams and eleven professors from around the world. The tech-themed conference blended education and networking opportunities with challenging case questions.
Our week-long event began with a Thanksgiving meal, a trip to Niagara Falls, and a virtual reality team-building event. It continued with an Education Day, where sponsors delivered “Tech talks” about disruption in the technology sector. Teams then participated in an intensive five-hour case, followed by a 24-hour case, where they showcased their knowledge of integrated business principles, new technologies, and their ability to adapt to the ever-changing world of business. The three finalist teams presented to a panel of esteemed industry judges, sharing their unique solutions to finding the intersection between traditional banking and the emergence of FinTech.
