Lakeland College’s case team placed third at the 13th annual Alberta Deans of Business Case Competition (ADBC) from March 22-24.
The competition was held at Norquest College and Grant MacEwan University. Thirteen teams from across the province vied for the top spot after developing beneficial solutions for real-world business problems in a time-pressured scenario. Lakeland’s case team – sponsored by chartered professional accounting firm Metrix Group – received $1,500 for placing in the third spot.

“It was a pleasure to work with this exciting team of students from the business department.  These students worked very well together and their success is a testament to the quality of instruction and support the college offers. I hope this inspires even more students to consider opportunities like this going forward,” says business instructor Ben Acquaye, who’s also the case team’s faculty advisor.

This is the third time in five years Lakeland’s case teams have placed in the ADBC and the fifth time in 13 years.
