Extracurricular Opportunities

Explore beyond the classroom and connect with opportunities that apply your learning, enhance your education and build your personal and professional network. Getting involved in extracurricular opportunities is a great way to learn while having fun and connecting with peers.

Management Students Association Competitions and Conferences

The MSA subsidizes up to 70% of expenses for students to attend external conferences and competitions anywhere in the world.

The Conferences & Competitions handbook is the perfect place to get started if you’re looking to expand your national network. It lists a number of external conferences & competitions across Canada and the US for you to attend; with information on credentials needed to apply, how to apply, what you will learn and everything else in between.

It doesn’t end here – there are conferences and competitions all over the world and we encourage you to look outside the handbook for other opportunities!
