The Process

Teams consisting of 3-4 students are given a finance case specific to a publicly-traded company on the TSX or NYSE.

Each team will be given their case 7 days prior to the conference. They will be tasked with presenting a solution to their case based on real-life scenarios in the financial industry.

Presentations will take place on the second day of the conference. Each group will present in front of a panel of judges, consisting of industry professionals. The presentation is 20 minutes in length followed by a 10 minute Q&A session.

All teams will also participate in preparing the crisis case on the third day. They will have 90 minutes to prepare their deliverables, with no internet access, and have an allotted time of 10 minutes for their presentation which includes the question and answer session.

Prior to the presentations, the top 6 teams will be announced and will be presenting in front of all the judges and delegates. The winners will be announced that evening at the final gala.

Why Apply?

Participating delegates are already one step closer to reaching their dream careers as they showcase their analytical, technical, and presentation skills to solve real life financial issues to judges. These judges are comprised of experienced professionals in the fields of Finance and software. Delegates are taking part in a challenging case competition right in the heart of the financial district of Toronto. Additionally, the judges will provide feedback to the delegates to ameliorate their presentation and case solving skills, as well as network with the delegates. Delegates will have the opportunity to compete among students from other top universities, and participate in workshops that will further develop their skills. Battle on Bay provides the opportunity to meet fellow like-minded business students and provides a platform to share ideas and broaden the professional network of delegates. We strive to ameliorate this year’s conference, in the hopes of providing all delegates, sponsors, and esteemed guests with a competition experience paralleled by none.
