What is the 24-Hour Case?

This is a large-scale in-person experiential learning challenge that all Commerce Level I students face together as part of the 1GR0: Student Experience and Development course. In groups, 1st-year students apply problem-solving, collaboration, self-management, and budgeting skills to solve a case in an event that lasts 24 hours.

We are actively recruiting volunteers who want to develop their business skills such as mentorship, leadership, and networking.
