Dear MBA students,
Please see below for a great opportunity to engage in sustainability issues in business, and in the mining industry specifically.
On November 25th and 26th, York University’s Schulich School of Business will host the inaugural Schulich International Case Competition (SICC) with a focus on sustainability in the mining industry, with the support of Schulich Executive in Residence and former CEO of Inmet Mining, Richard Ross. SICC 2011 participants will have the opportunity to examine the complex sustainability challenges facing the mining sector today. As sustainability issues and their associated risks increasingly shape the discourse around mining and extractives, developing a solid understanding and familiarity of this landscape will be a valuable experience for future business leaders.
This case competition will bring 20 teams from top MBA schools together with sustainability professionals and top industry executives to advance the discussion on these challenging issues. This is an outstanding opportunity for students to compete on a truly global stage amidst leaders in one of the world’s most important and controversial industries. Registration is now open on our website and admission will be offered on a rolling basis.
