MBA Experience - Case Competitions

For the past four years the Maine Business School has sponsored teams of MBA students participating in the John Molson International MBA Case Competition held in Montreal, Canada. Held since 1981, the Molson competition is the largest, oldest and one of the most respected MBA case competitions in the world.

The competition format is a round-robin tournament involving 36 teams, each consisting of 4 MBA students, representing universities from around the world.  With three hours to prepare, the teams analyze and evaluate unpublished business cases using the skills, knowledge and experience they have acquired from their respective MBA curriculums.

Students rely on their own abilities as they are without the aid of tools such as PowerPoint and the Internet. The final product is a hand written presentation that demonstrates the students’ ability to dig into the problem and develop a feasible solution. Once preparation is complete, they present their strategic solutions and a detailed plan of action to a panel of senior business executives.  Teams are judged on creativity, insight, substance and plausibility of implementation.

Students interested in learning more about the Molson Competition should contact either Paul Myer or Jason Harkins.
