Simon Fraser University's (SFU) Beedie School of Business captured the Academic School of the Year award at the prestigious JDC West case competition, held January 18 through 20 at the University of British Columbia, edging out 11 other Canadian business schools.

JDC West is western Canada's largest business school competition. It brings together 600 delegates and includes 10 academic disciplines, a Parliamentary debate, an athletic tournament and a social competition.

SFU's Beedie School of Business also enjoyed success in individual competition categories at JDC West, taking:

  • first place in the international business and finance competitions;
  • second place in the management information systems, business strategy, human resources and taxation categories; and
  • third place in both accounting and debate.

"The success our 2013 JDC West team enjoyed is a tremendous achievement and reflects the well-rounded attributes of our undergraduate students and the alumni coaches who supported them," said Andrew Gemino, SFU's associate dean of undergraduate programs.
