MMICC Local has a social mission to provide non-profit organizations based in Quebec and Canada a unique opportunity to source consulting solutions from local business, engineering and science students studying in Montreal.

About

MMICC Local is a truly Montreal-based case competition with a social mission to provide student consulting solutions for a Canadian non-profit organization in an effort to give back to the community at large. Drawing from the varied skills of students in business, engineering, and science at Montreal-based universities such as McGill, Concordia, HEC Montreal and École Polytechnique, MMICC Local offers a unique opportunity for students and professionals in Montreal to share ideas in the context of social change.

Overview

This year again, the MMICC LOCAL case study will be held on a non-profit organization supporting the Montreal community. Students in teams of 4 will be given one week from case launch to the submission deadline to submit an annotated slide deck on which they will be judged. The top 24 teams will be invited for a first-round presentation and networking cocktail with MMICC LOCAL’s sponsor BCA Research. Interviews for summer positions at BCA Research may be held by invitation during this time. The top three contenders will be invited to a final presentation held during the second week of March as part of MMICC week.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn about case cracking and presentation during a presentation given by the Boston Consulting Group at MMICC LOCAL’s Case Launch, as well as an additional tutorial given by MMICC executives during LOCAL case-crack week.
