Student Experience

A student team reflects on their participation at the Global Case Competition at Harvard University. The students discuss the competition itself, the weeks leading up to the competition, the gala following the event, and what they learned throughout the process. 

Rachel (CFM), Shilp (AFM), Mischa (AFM), and Tony (AFM) recently won the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) Case Competition. 

Read their blog to learn more about their experience during the competition and their innovative solution for BP's transfer to more sustainable and renewable energy model. 

Students from our Sustainability and Financial Management (SFM) program recently won the final round of the Accounting for Sustainability (A4S) International Case Competition.

Learn about their experience and prize-winning solution that led them to surpass teams from Germany, Norway, the United States, and Canada, to securing the top spot and a coveted prize of $10,000.

As the lucky students who recently travelled to Switzerland for the winter School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) 2024 International Study Course trip, we are reflecting on and sharing our once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Meet Hana, a second year Honours Arts and Business student majoring in Communication Studies who has just finished a co-op term at the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF).

Hana worked as the competition coordinator associate, creating digital communications, assisting with the administration of the Financial Literacy Competition, and working on events for SAF students.

Since I moved from Hong Kong at fourteen years old, finding “home” in a new country was a scary thing. With time and new experiences, I have learned to be independent, gained intercultural skills, and developed curiosity for the people and things around me. Starting university at Waterloo was a learning curve too (with co-op as well).
