About Us

Battle on Bay is a unique and intellectually challenging opportunity for students to analyze financial cases on selected industries. The top undergraduate students from across the Nation are invited to compete. Competitors will develop essential skills in financial strategies, financial modeling and pitching, and apply them to the case. Top industry professionals from the selected industry will gather to judge and prospect.

The two-day conference will be hosted in downtown Toronto. Here, delegates will be treated to many informative workshops and activities that relate to the field of Finance. Battle on Bay also provides networking opportunities with students and industry professionals, culminating with a gala dinner on the final evening.

    We are excited to announce the theme of this year’s Battle on Bay conference: Finance in the Automotive Industry. Canada’s Auto Industry is the 8th largest in the world and is a major contribution to the Canadian economy. Canada manufactures many different types of vehicles from cars and trucks to military transportation. On top of this, the after-market industry has become a world-class service provider. Therefore, it is crucial for any aspiring financial analysts to understand its importance in Canada. This case competition and conference will allow delegates to gain a competitive advantage by solving a real life situation that professionals encounter in the automobile industry. Delegates will also have the opportunity to network with industry professionals from leading auto companies.
