We’re delighted to highlight just a few of the podium-worthy results our students have earned at recent business competitions, conferences and more during this winter term:
You’re Hired! Interview Competition
For 12 years and running, the competition invites students from Dalhousie and Saint Mary’s to put their interview skills to the test, culminating in a live interview final in front of an audience. This year’s first- and second-place winners went to Dalhousie Bachelor of Commerce students Adrian Hutcheson and Briana Dologh. Read more about Adrian’s big win.
Great Canadian Sales Competition
Out of more than 2,200 submissions, three Rowe School of Business students (Tatum Freigang, Tiana Vuckovic and Josh Boothroyd) were included among the competition’s top 22 finalists from across Canada, where they received a paid trip to Toronto to compete in the final round at Google Canada.
