Vision

JDCC is the largest undergraduate business school competition in Central Canada, bringing together over 700 student delegates from Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Lasting three days each winter, the JDCC is a multi-faceted competition that includes academic cases covering eight business disciplines. Through the competition, participating students are given opportunities to formulate solutions to business problems under pressure, while learning from experienced business professionals from across Canada.

Our goal is to raise $2,000, which will enable our team of Dalhousie Commerce students to participate in this year’s competition and strive to earn the title of “School of the Year” to prove that we are the best of the best! Check out the video above and consider supporting this year’s JDCC participants by making a $50.00 gift today.

Story

Dalhousie Commerce students have participated in the JDCC competition for the past seven years, with the exception of last year. In the past, we have to strengthen the Dalhousie Brand by successfully bringing home multiple trophies, including the Academic Cup in 2016. Last year, our team was unable to attend due to a lack of funds. This year, we hope to climb back to the top and win the “School of the Year” award, which is given to the team who scores the highest in all segments of the competition. Our Co-Captains began fundraising in April to support our participation in this year’s competition. To date, we have secured $5,000, thanks to our amazing sponsors including Emera. Our goal is to raise an additional $2,000 to help with the fees for food and accommodations.

Impact

By attending this year’s competition, our team will develop skills to help us become better equipped to become business leaders of tomorrow. This includes:

1) Improving networking skills and developing the confidence to step outside of our comfort zone through solving real-world social problems;
1) Honing strong argumentative and negotiation skills for debating;
2) Fostering a sense of healthy and fair competition through athletics games;
3) Learning to professionally present our ideas and receiving practical and constructive feedback from real business leaders.
