Van Berkom JMSB Small-Cap Case Competition

Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) and Van Berkom and Associates Inc. are thrilled to announce the 8th annual Van Berkom JMSB Small Cap Case Competition will take place on March 22 and 23, 2019.

This event, a premier case competition focused on small-cap investment, will provide undergraduate and graduate-level business students with an opportunity to showcase their ability to analyze financial business cases, develop strategic recommendations and apply the academic skills they have gained in the classroom.

Why Attend?

A Unique Case Format
The Van Berkom JMSB Case Competition is the only competition of its kind. Not only is the competition focused on finance, where teams must evaluate whether to hold or sell based on their assessment of the chosen company, but each case is presenting in a live format. Teams are invited in to a simulated analyst call, where Mr. van Berkom and two of his senior associates act as the management of the chosen company. Teams are given a summary of the company and then have the opportunity to ask two questions per team.

Nine Teams, Two Days
A qualifying round will be carried out in January. Teams will be given a week to complete their analysis of a case and submit their written applications. The top nine teams selected by our qualifying round judges will be invited to travel to Montreal in March to compete in the Van Berkom JMSB Case Competition. The final competition will involve two days of intense case solving.

$6,000 in Cash Prizes
All nine teams will compete for $6,000 in cash prizes, with first place walking away with a cheque for $3,000.
