CMA Student Awards

30 Jul

I’m a huge fan of case competitions as a great way for students to gain practical skills. I find that cases provide exposure to a range of industries, develop your analytical skills, and of course, you have the challenge of presenting or writing under tight timelines. The Canadian Marketing Association is running a case competition with 2 categories: Creative and Marketing. If you’re a student, consider entering as an individual or as a part of a team.

The Co-op Scoop: If you don’t have a lot of work experience, case competitions can help you to build an impressive resume. Plus, getting practise writing and presenting will help a lot during interviews!

Details can be found here: http://www.the-cma.org/awards/studentawards.html

Just for entering, you’ll get a CMA membership. And, if you win, you’ll get $500, exposure on the CMA site, and the chance to accept your award at the Awards Show. So, what are you waiting for? Get started!
