VIU students compete at MBA Games

A team of students in Vancouver Island University’s master of business administration program are in training to show off their mental and physical agility.

The students will take part in the MBA National Games in Alberta Jan. 6-10, competing against 20 other MBA programs in academic skills, athletic abilities and team spirit for the Queen’s Cup.

This year’s games are hosted by the Alberta School of Business and the University of Alberta in Edmonton with a focus on innovation and technology.

It’s the second year in a  row VIU has been invited to the games.

Last year’s team placed second in the business simulation, sixth in marketing and eighth in soccer.
