IMI Competition Group

In addition to the conference and competition support that we offer all of our students, we have an additional elite offering for those looking to really hone their skills while representing their school.

The IMI Competition Group is an application based group consisting of 4-5 teams who will compete in case competitions across Canada. Not only are they funded to compete, but they also receive additional tailored training based on their selected competitions.

IMI Competition Group Recruitment for Competitors

Recruitment for IMIC is open to incoming 3rd and 4th year students from all programs. Incoming 2nd year students will be considered provided they have relevant case competition experience. All applications will be accepted from mid to late February, after which successful applicants will be notified for interviews in March. The second stage of the recruitment process consists of a group interview and final team selections will be made by mid-March.

IMI Competition Group Recruitment for Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program is designed for incoming second year students from all programs to learn how to excel in case competitions. Our goal is to increase the caliber of IMIC Competitors and engage prospective students by recruiting them after the Mentorship Program, and upon completion of their second year. All mentees will be expected to attend the training sessions and workshops and apply this knowledge at internal case competitions. As part of the program, mentees will also have access to IMIC resources, such as past cases and a compilation of past presentation slide decks. The application period will take place mid August, after which applicants will be notified for interviews in late August. Final selections will be made by early September.
