MONTREAL, Nov. 13, 2019 /CNW/ - FlightHub, a leading online travel technology company, is proud to be partnering with Concordia University's John Molson School of Business MBA Case Competition, which will take place the week of January 6th, 2020 in Montreal. In addition to sponsoring the week-long event, several of FlightHub's executives will be included in the panel of judges.
"More than 300 business executives serve as judges, using their unique backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to critically assess the participants' presentations," state the event's organizers. "In 1992, the competition went international and now comprises 36 teams coming from 5 continents. It is the oldest and largest case competition in the world involving 200 outstanding MBA students from well-known business schools as well as judges from the Montreal business community. Teams are evaluated on creativity, insight, substance and plausibility of implementation. We are proud to welcome FlightHub as our premium diamond sponsor this year, for what will be the 39th edition of the John Molson School of Business Case Competition."
The competition is open to top business schools worldwide and is recognized as the largest case competition of its kind. During the event, students will be presented with seven unpublished case studies, as well as a live case presentation by a company facing an actual business challenge. It is an opportunity for the students to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired throughout their MBA training, as well as to showcase their business acumen to an international audience.
