Historic finish at Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec

For the first time, student teams from the Asper School of Business placed in the Top 25 semi-final round of Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec, a national advertising and marketing case competition.

The team of Asper MBA students Amanda MacDonald and Geeta Chopra, and the team of BComm students Hilary Lisi and Ashton Dewar, were the only two from Western Canada to reach the semi-finals after competing against more than 3,000 students from 38 schools across the country.

Lisi and Dewar then advanced as far as the Top 10 final round in Toronto in March, where they received the $5,000 Canadian Tire Award for Innovative Presentation after pitching their marketing plan.
