Next time you get an opportunity to register for a case competition, I strongly suggest you do it— you won’t regret it. When I was in my second year of the AFM program, I had an intense interest in competing. I had seen my friends and peers find success when competing and I wondered if I could as well.

I know how daunting the thought of a job search can be. For this very reason, as September came to an end, I was eager to attend the Launch Your Career event!

Hi, I’m Nicholas B. and I’m in my 1A term of the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program. The story I have for you is one of seizing an opportunity and achieving greatness. Anyone can get lucky, but it takes a true Waterloo Warrior to make their own luck and ensure greatness.

I think that participating in and winning the Schulich RISE business strategies case competition has showed me the benefits of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and being confident in my abilities!

Throughout my university career, I’ve always strived to become the best person I can be. That’s why I believed that entering the Schulich RISE competition would not only help me work towards this goal but also provide me with learning opportunities and a great experience.
