Group will be the first-ever Canadian team at the competition

October 16, 2019 -- Laurentian University is proud to announce that a team of students from the Business Administration program will be heading to Daejeon, South Korea, to participate in the International Business Plan Competition 2019 hosted by SolBridge International School of Business. The event runs from October 27th to November 2nd.

The Laurentian students are the first and only Canadian team at this event. They will be competing against nearly two dozen teams from all over the world. Students will be expected to develop in-depth analysis and recommendations based on a real-world scenario involving a leading Korean multinational company. The objective of the competition is to create networking opportunities and establish a platform to unleash creativity and innovative thinking. 

The team consists of fourth-year business students Maxime Leduc, Sarah Napoli, Stephane Lauzon and Daniel Boileau. Participating in this event is a great experiential learning opportunity for our students which meets outcome #6 of Laurentian University’s strategic plan. We wish them the best of luck.
