UPEI stu­dents rec­og­nized

UPEI busi­ness stu­dents en­joy suc­cess

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

Nine stu­dents — two teams of four stu­dents and one team com­pet­ing as a pair — have par­tic­i­pated in four com­pe­ti­tions this aca­demic year, plac­ing first and se­cond in one re­gional com­pe­ti­tion, se­cond place in an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion and gain­ing en­try into the fi­nal round of two in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.

The teams are busy pre­par­ing for com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing the In­ter-Col­le­giate Busi­ness Com­pe­ti­tion later this month and the John Mol­son Un­der­grad­u­ate Case Com­pe­ti­tion in Fe­bru­ary.

“On be­half of the prov­ince of Prince Ed­ward Is­land, I’d like to ex­tend con­grat­u­la­tions to UPEI’s case com­pe­ti­tion teams that saw some in­cred­i­ble re­sults this past se­mes­ter,” said Work­force and Ad­vanced Learn­ing Min­is­ter Richard Brown, adding the stu­dents com­peted in a va­ri­ety of com­pe­ti­tions across Canada, and their hard work should be com­mended.

Hear­ing about suc­cess like this for Is­land stu­dents is en­cour­ag­ing, said Brown, and is just one ex­am­ple of the im­pres­sive work be­ing done by stu­dents in Prince Ed­ward Is­land.

“It is my hope that Is­land em­ploy­ers take no­tice and con­sider hir­ing stu­dents like our case com­pe­ti­tion par­tic­i­pants, through var­i­ous pro­grams, such as the grad­u­ate men­tor­ship pro­gram.”
