Oakville Trafalgar team takes top prize at Rotman Commerce Boardroom Competition
On Saturday, March 17, a team of Grade 12 students from Oakville Trafalgar High School took the top prize in the finals of Rotman Commerce's second annual Boardroom Case Competition. Competing against eight other finalists from Ontario high schools, the Oakville students won with their pitch for FitCalm, a subscription-based meditation and fitness app to promote mental and physical health in youth.
An initiative of the Rotman Commerce Alumni Steering Committee, the Boardroom Case Competition was held for the first time in 2017, and was designed to give prospective students a taste of university-level business education and spark interest in business studies.
“The Boardroom is a wonderful way for alumni, students, and staff to work together to provide inspiring educational opportunities to high school students,” says Jeannine Woodall, Rotman Commerce’s Director of Academic Services and Student Life. “It encourages them to take an interest in business, introduces them to the professional talent of Rotman Commerce alumni, helps show prospective students how Rotman Commerce is an outstanding undergraduate business program that is dedicated to reaching out to young people and introducing them to the multi-faceted aspects of business education and its relevant application today.”
As winners of the competition, Jiang, Ge, Barber, and Lim will all receive a $2,500 scholarship towards their first year of tuition at Rotman Commerce.
