For most teams, Day 1 was spent choosing their own adventure. Some teams climbed Mont Royal to catch a glimpse of the Montreal skyline, while other teams elected to go shopping on St. Catherine. Other teams spent the day in the old port, visiting some of Montreal’s older attractions such as the Notre Dame Basilica.
After the adventures, all the teams ventured to McGill’s Management Faculty building to watch the Local Case Competition as well as a lecture from behavioural finance professor, Ken Lester. The Montreal Local case competition featured a case presented by the Canadian Cancer Society. The inaugural cocktail was hosted at the Gallary D’art Loft where an assortment of snacks were shared. The night was capped with a Bohemian Rhapsody themed Karaoke party at McGill favourite, Ace Bar.
