On April 16, the International School of Business and Technology of LaSalle College held its annual CEO event. This year, the formula was quite different since, due to circumstances related to COVID-19, the event was held online.
More than 75 people participated in this virtual event, including students and teachers. It was an exceptional experience for the graduates of the Business Management program (DEC). Such an activity demonstrated the speed of adaptation and the digital transformation of LaSalle College in the development of its students' learning.
This competition put the spotlight on entrepreneurship, one of the three educational pillars of LaSalle College. Its objective was to crown the sustained efforts of graduates in the preparation of their projects and the development of their creative, innovative and entrepreneurial skills. Students were supervised by their teachers on several aspects, including marketing, finance, accounting and sales.
In order to win one of the three scholarships, the students had to convince the jury members from the industry. The six finalist teams competed against each other by presenting their respective business projects.
After deliberation, the members of the Jury finally chose the three winning teams:
1. The first prize: $1,000:
2. The second prize: $600 + The CEO 2020 Favourite Award of $250
