The focus of the student-run competition demonstrates the profile that business ethics and corporate social responsibility are gaining among business students and faculty, especially in the wake of recent corporate scandals.
The competition at Dalhousie is the latest student-run business competition to feature ethics. Queen's Intercollegiate Business Case Competition (ICBC), with its business ethics competition, has been in place for over 25 years
