Canadian Institute for Traffic and Transportation (CITT) is honoured to have been involved in the 2013 MBA games for the first time, and also proud to be leading the strategy case study with a focus on supply chain and logistics.

The MBA games were held from January 4-6, 2013 at McMaster University – DeGroote School of Business – in Burlington, Ontario.

At the MBA games, schools compete in a series of academic, athletic, and spirit competitions, while enjoying a variety of networking events designed to challenge and stimulate Canada’s future business leaders. The MBA Games competition provides students an unparalleled opportunity to meet their fellow MBAs from across Canada, creating a unique platform for companies to interact with students through networking events, academic cases and event sponsorship.

According to CITT President Catherine Viglas, CITT is always eager to promote supply chain to Canadians as a career of choice, or to offer CITT expertise to those seeking to enhance their existing academic or professional credentials.

“Through this involvement, CITT brought awareness of the importance of supply chains and the wonderful career options of this field to Canada’s best and brightest – the graduates of the 2013 MBA games,” said Ms. Viglas.

The Canadian MBA Games began at Queen’s University in 1988. The Games were hosted by Queen’s for seven years before being hosted by McGill University in 1996, and the University of Western Ontario in 1997. Since then, the Games have typically been hosted by the winning school, and have been held across the country for the past 16 years. This annual event is the largest gathering of MBA students in Canada, and an opportunity to compete against, network with and learn from some of the best and brightest business leaders in the country.

Toronto’s Schulich School of Business took home this year’s Queen’s Cup. The team beat 21 other competitors from other graduate business schools to win its fourth MBA Games at the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University in Hamilton. Schulich, which also won in 2003, 2004 and 2010, will be the host in 2014.
