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 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 all faculties at Montreal-based universities such as McGill, Concordia, HEC Montreal, UQAM, 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 and a three-minute summary video on which they will be judged. The top 24 teams will be invited to semi-final presentations and the 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 the final presentations held during the second week of March as part of the international portion of MMICC.

History

MMICC Local was founded in 2016 and welcomed over 150 students in its first year from McGill and HEC Montreal. Students were given 1 week to solve a case written on the Canadian Cancer Society.  

Participating schools

We are targeting university students graduating in 2018 and 2019 from McGill, Concordia, HEC Montreal, UQAM, and École Polytechnique. Students will have the opportunity to compete in teams of 4 people across faculties and disciplines.

The Format
