TESTIMONIALS

  • Participating in the Engineering & Commerce Case Competition (ECCC) was hands down one of the best experiences in my undergraduate experience. The premise of the of the competition was to give us a chance to work in a multidisciplinary group under pressure. Coming up with solutions in that intense environment along with receiving and incorporating feedback from industry experts, served as a great learning opportunity. Beside all the knowledge I gained, I also had a lot of fun and met many like minded individuals

  • The 2016 ECCC competition was the highlight of my entire undergraduate degree. This amazing experience forced me to develop my strengths, trust my teammates, and powerfully communicate a decision. The case problems are very abstract, yet still applicable, giving real life experience that relate to diverse future careers. Most impressive of all, was how the ECCC team managed to mesh a professional event with friendly social fun. If I could do the competition again I would in an instant.

  • I had the honour of being titled Best Speaker at ECCC 2016 in Montreal. Over my university career, I've participated in many case competitions and intensive programs, but I've never done something like ECCC before. The months of prep-time with your team ahead of time, the tense and exciting atmosphere throughout the week, and the relief when it's all over created a wholistic learning experience. The opportunity to compete against schools from around the world, and truly understanding that when it comes to engineering and commerce, one simply cannot exist without the other was unforgettable. I simply could not recommend this competition more to students, schools and potential sponsors.
