Welcome to the 14th annual Alberta Deans of Business Case Competition, proudly sponsored by the CPA Education Foundation. Athabasca University Faculty of Business and NAIT JR Shaw School of Business are pleased to host this year’s competition! All events will be held on NAIT’s main campus.
We have chosen a celebratory theme of Academy Case Study Awards for the event. We look forward to coming together under this fun theme of festivity and celebration and encourage participants to don their best awards show attire for the gala dinner on Thursday evening.
To the students and their coaches who will be working hard together to prepare for this competition, we commend your dedication and commitment to learning, fair competition and professional growth. To all of the Deans and guests attending from the multitude of education institutions and locations from across the province, we extend a warm welcome. We are excited to have you here in Edmonton again this year.
We wish the best of luck to all competitors. We hope you enjoy your visit to our city and our hospitality. Athabasca University’s Faculty of Business and NAIT’s JR Shaw School of Business extend a warm welcome to all!
