A Big Month for Lang Students at Case Competitions

Posted on Monday, February 13th, 2023

Students from the ACE case competition

Facing stiff competition from other business schools across Canada, the Lang delegations held their own and took 7 top three finishes at ACE, 4 top three finishes at JDCC and 4 first-place finishes at the DeGroote summit.
