Student Competitions: Join the Action!

Are you one of our best and brightest business learners? Have you wanted to get more involved with AU? Well, have we got an opportunity for you!

Every year, Athabasca University – Faculty of Business (AU-FB) puts together teams that compete in student competitions. Student competitions are a great way to meet fellow learners, while practically applying and strengthening your skills and knowledge.

It’s a great way to take your online learning – offline!

Who is eligible to participate?

If you’re a full-time AU-FB undergraduate certificate or program learner, or an MBA student, please consider applying. It doesn’t matter where you live, so long as you meet the other requirements.

We are currently recruiting for three competitions! You can apply for one or more!

  • Alberta Deans of Business Competition (undergraduate case competition)
  • CPA Business Challenge (undergraduate case competition)
  • CME Group’s Trading Challenge (undergraduate and MBA trading competition)

What are the benefits for me if I participate?

Not only do you get the chance to meet and work with some of your AU-FB colleagues, but your travel, accommodations, and food are covered. You also could be eligible for course credits!

Still aren’t sure if this is for you? Check out some of our articles on the past competitions!

“This [case competition] was such a fantastic learning experience. We all would recommend that students apply to be part of a case competition. It’s a great way to meet other students and to develop the skills that are sometimes difficult to work on when completing school online.”
