MBA Games

Each year, the MBA Games marks the largest gathering of MBA students in Canada. Students from business schools across the country compete in three categories: Academics, Athletics and Spirit.

This year, the team from the DeGroote School of Business finished first in both Athletics and Academics. This is DeGroote’s fifth time winning the MBA Games, with the school’s last victory coming in 2014. As a result of this year’s triumph in Toronto, the MBA Games could potentially return to DeGroote next year.

More than 20 schools participated in the competition, including: Schulich, Rotman, Ivey, Ryerson and Dalhousie. Ryerson placed second and Schulich third.
