STRIVEing to have fun! Overcoming previous competition woes

Tony, AFM student

In all honestly, I used to dislike case competitions. Competing was stressful and I lost several times, however, despite my suboptimal experiences in the past, I found a turning point this year with the STRIVE Conference case competition, which is among Ontario’s largest accounting-focused conferences.

Lessons learned from competing at STRIVE

Through the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) External Competition Subsidy Program, I recently had the pleasure of competing in the STRIVE Case Competition, where my team came in first place!

It was an honour to represent the School of Accounting and Finance and win first place in the STRIVE Conference's national case competition at the senior tier level among several other teams across the country.

This January, a team composed of four undergraduate students in Accounting and Financial Management, Engineering, and Planning competed in the eighth edition of the annual Ryerson Real Estate Expand Your Empire (EYE) Case Competition, where their financially feasible and sustainable design won both the first place grand prize and the Most Feasible Design award for a total cash prize of $11,500.

An unexpected victory!

In December 2021, we competed in the second annual Interactive Business Dashboard Competition (IBDC), a competition sponsored by the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Information Integrity and Information System Assurance (UW CISA). Our task was to develop an interactive business dashboard for a toy store retailer, TTS, where the company can monitor their own performance.

Making the Best Out of the Pandemic

The upside was that I could compete in competitions that are now virtual and make meaningful connections with other students

At the start of the global pandemic, I pictured months filled with monotony and boredom, since the most enjoyable part of being in the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program was missing – connections in person with other people. Fortunately, the reality was very far from my pessimistic expectation.
