2022 David Sobey Centre National Retail Case Competition

Date Published: February 11, 2022

The David Sobey Centre National Retail Case Competition is a unique experience for students that allows them to solve real challenges and pain points faced by retailers while competing against students across Canada. After reading a specially written case, students are given the opportunity to meet with company executives to get a more in-depth view of the problem and ask questions to support their analysis.

Teams are given five days to come up with their best innovative solutions and submit their video case presentations. The videos will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will select the top teams to compete in the final and present live (virtually) to the company executives who will crown the winner of the competition. 


This year's case is in collaboration with:
