The Peter P. Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics is now accepting applications for UBC Sauder students to participate in the second annual Ted Rogers Ethical Case Competition, which will be held in Toronto on November 18, 2017. Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, October 25, 2017.


The second annual competition will be held at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management. The competition provides students with the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills as well as gain experience on how to navigate real-life ethical issues in the workplace.

Eight teams from business schools across Canada will be given one week to analyze a case study with the help of faculty coaches. Students are then given 20 minutes to present their recommendations to a panel of judges followed by a 10 minute Q&A portion. Of the eight teams competing, four teams will advance to the finals where they will be met with a twist on the original case. A winning team will then be announced at the dinner gala on November 18, 2017.

Case competition team members will be expected to participate in weekly case competition practice sessions with a team of faculty, staff, alumni and student coaches. In addition, they should anticipate preparation time once the case is released the week prior to the competition.

Case competition team members should expect to contribute approximately $200 toward the costs involved in traveling to Toronto and participating in the competition, but arrangements may be made in cases of financial hardship.

Interested students must apply by 11 pm on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. A resume, transcript and statement outlining students’ interest in the competition is required.

Applications can be sent to Christie Stephenson, executive director of the Dhillon Centre, at
