"Case Competitions are the most exciting opportunity for students to be involved in during academics to advance their career"
What are case competitions?
Case competitions are experiential learning opportunities for students to gain real-world skills through solving a complex problem with a team.
They can be provincial/statewide nationwide or international case competitions.
In most case competitions, students will compete in teams of 3-4 and solve a problem, prepare a presentation over a restricted amount of time, and deliver that presentation to a set of judges.
In DECA U you either compete by yourself or with a partner solving a case over 15-30 minutes then present your solution to a judge.
How do they help?
Case competitions are the way to get into the program and career you want to get into
Case competitions expose you to networking opportunities, your judges are potential employers, your competitors are potential colleagues.
In some competitions, they can give you the opportunity to travel, earn reward money for winning and represent your university on a competitive stage.
What's my experience?
During my undergraduate degree, I competed in 27 case competitions.
Placed top 3 on 13 occasions.
Trained over 12 students to achieve top 3 in national and provincial competitions.

I got the pleasure of meeting Daniel in his third year of Business at the University of Guelph-Humber. He's someone that is very kind, generous and capable as he has trained and mentored me in DECA & The Canada Comeback Challenge. He was easily approachable and had the best intentions for me. That mindset alongside the training sessions we had together led my partner and me to win a 1st and 3rd place medal at the Guelph-Humber DECA Invitational and, placing in the top of three of our category in The Canada Comeback Challenge.
He is insightful about many industry’s and being able to learn from him through his experiences at International Case Competitions was extraordinarily valuable. He is someone that I can have meaningful conversations with and, through those conversations has helped me develop myself and how I tackle problems in life. I recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a case competition coach or any company considering Daniel for a role
