1st place 4 times; 2nd place three times

Bishop’s University finance professor Steve Barlow was on the initial planning committee for the creation of the Network of International Business Schools in early nineties. The main raison d’être for the association is documented in the nibsnet.org site. Currently there are over 65 members of the network worldwide.

The NIBS case competition began in 1996, with the first competition hosted by ESCA University in Rennes, France. The host of each successive NIBS case competition was traditionally the winner of the previous year’s competition. Bishop’s has competed successfully in the preliminary rounds of each of the NIBS competitions since its inception. This preliminary round is a written case analysis, submitted to the host university, which chooses the best 7 entrants (the host university receives a bye into the final round) to compete in the week long case competition.

Bishop’s has sent teams and their coaches to competitions hosted from St. John’s to Auckland, New Zealand, have won the competition four times and have placed second on three different occasions. The BU team won the 2007 Competition hosted by DIT, Dublin and the 2006 competition hosted by BI University in Oslo, Norway; BU also won at the Auckland university of Technology in New Zealand in 2002 and the 1999 competition hosted by Bishop’s themselves. Bishop’s also hosted the competition 2003.

This year's NIBS Intenational Student Case Competition competition will be hosted by Coventry University Business School and we look forward to a great competition.
