Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec Celebrates Real World Wins
[Vancouver, BC] – Entering the second decade of the program, Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec (CNTAE) is one of the largest post-secondary marketing competitions in Canada. The program is sponsored by real companies who put their reputation in the hands of Canada’s top Marketing students.
Every year, a program partner gives Top Ad competitors a case that features a real-world problem that the company is currently facing. Participants on Top Ad have the opportunity to solve a company’s case and have their solutions implemented. In previous years, the “Don’t just drive. CRUZE.” slogan from Chevrolet came from one of the participants from our program.
This year, students have a chance to win a brand new 2017 Chevy Cruze and up to $2500 in monetary prizes. Internships will also be offered by program sponsors and other partner companies. The winning school’s career centre and marketing associations will also be gifted with various awards and prizes.
With Top Ad history spanning over a decade and finally reaching its 11th year, the program has already facilitated over 65 career opportunities and awarded countless prizes with the total aggregate valued over $560, 000. The competition is easily the largest for business students across Canada, with more than 30+ schools participating each year. Students who are looking for opportunities to challenge themselves, gain valuable experience, and further their marketing strategy skills are encouraged to get involved.
Last year, UBC saw great success, with five teams progressing into the Top 25 semi-final rounds, and two teams (Trixie Hernandez & Tessa Yin and Maciek Piskorz & Austin Smith) earning their spot as one of the Top 10 finalists. More details about the competition will be provided at an upcoming information session in November. Questions can also be directed to the UBC Campus Account Managers, Jessica Tse and Lyndan Lam.
About Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec: Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec is a national marketing and advertising case competition that is targeted towards business majors, minors and MBA students. The program aims to establish a bridge between the university and the real world to facilitate a transfer of dialogue and expertise.
