Date Published: January 18, 2023

The David Sobey Centre National Retail Case Competition is hosted by the David Sobey Centre for Innovation in Retailing & Services at Saint Mary’s University. The competition (which is entirely virtual) provides an excellent opportunity for experiential learning as students apply what they learn in the classroom to a real problem from a national retailer as they meet with company executives and present their case solutions live.
