BCom students: JDC West

Peter B. Gustavson School of Business

In January, 38 BCom students returned victorious from Western Canada’s largest business school competition, known as JDC West. Thanks to a creative practice strategy and coaching from mentors and alumni, the UVic Business marketing and debate teams placed second and third out of a field of 450 competitors from nine schools. Teams had three hours to analyze a business case, present their findings and respond to questions. The team also scored big on the social responsibility side by raising over $5,000 for charity. Students volunteered at the Victoria Habitat for Humanity Sidney Build site and participated in the annual “Chilling for Charity.” This national Polar Bear dip, which involves business students from across Canada, was held last November. About 20 members of the UVic JDC team dashed into the frigid waters of Cadboro Bay. All funds support the Victoria Habitat for Humanity.
