National Ethical Leadership Case Competition

Ethical Leadership Case Competition

Students from universities across the country gather to compete in the annual Ted Rogers Ethical Leadership Case Competition. This is Canada’s largest undergraduate business ethics case competition.  

“Case competitions are wonderful opportunities for students to show that they can apply their classroom learning to propose concrete, practical solutions to realistic business scenarios,” said Chris MacDonald, director of TRSM’s Ted Rogers Leadership Centre. “This ethical leadership competition gives students the chance to demonstrate their understanding of leadership, and what leadership means in the context of socially-aware business.”

The competition is by invitation only. Eight teams of four students are given a business case study and have one week to examine what the ethical issues facing the company are and develop a solid action plan for the executives involved.

The Ted Rogers Leadership Centre is grateful to SNC-Lavalin for its sponsorship of the competition. SNC-Lavalin is a global professional services and project management company.
