Hot off the Wires

Teams from 15 Canadian Universities met at Concordia to compete in the 1988 MBA Case Competition organized by the Graduate Students Association of the Faculty of Commerce and Administration. On the last day of the three-day event, teams from the University of Alberta, Memorial University and Ottawa University each presented and defended a case study based on Loblaws, the Ontario supermarket chain. The judges were (l. to r.): André Lapointe, Executive Vice-President TeleGlobe Canada, Mariette St. Germain, Director of Marketing, Guardian Trust, Robert Garneau, Assistant General Manager, Administration, Bank of Nova Scotia and Manon Vennant, Vice President, Spencer Stuart. Arthur Earle, Senior Vice President, Dominion Textiles is not shown. (Since this is an actual video print of the transmission, the reproduction is of a lesser quality.)

The winning team was Memorial’s Gord Forsey, Brad Wicks, Louise Handrigan and Paul Walsh.

An edited version of the winning presentation may be seen on CANAL CFTU Ch. 29 cable 23 next Monday at 4 p.m., Tuesday at 11:30 p.m. and Sunday (14th) at 7 a.m.

This program is also being beamed via satellite to Memorial University, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, as part of a test of the link between CANAL and the Eastern Provinces University distance education network.
