2015 Cor Van Raay Agribusiness Case Competition
The University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College are proud to co-host the first annual Cor Van Raay Agribusiness Case Competition which will be held November 6-8, 2015. It is the first of its kind in Western Canada. Case competitions allow students to utilize their knowledge and draw from their experience in the area of agriculture and business to solve local and global issues presented in the case.
This competition will allow students to apply theoretical material to practical use in the areas of agriculture, natural resources and general business practices. Students studying agriculture and business at both the University and College level, in teams of four, will receive a written business problem and be given four hours to analyze and provide a solution to a panel of judges.
Over the 3 day competition, students will have the opportunity to network with local organizations and fellow students from other post-secondary institutions. Come and be a part of the experience!
