The Alberta International Business Competition (AIBC) is a student-run business competition out of the University of Alberta School of Business, Canada. The event takes place in November; in Jasper, about 4 hours from Edmonton where the university is located.
The AIBC consists of twelve teams, sorted into three pools of four teams each. Teams will be ranked cumulatively on two cases (one 5hour case and one 30hour case) and the team with the highest score in each pool will advance to the final round. The runner-up team from each division advances to a challenge round. The winner of this round also qualifies for the final. Cases are written in close cooperation with the members of the Alberta business community. Throughout the week, competitors have the opportunity to analyse and create detailed recommendations and action plans to judging panels from the local business community.
