About Us

Who we are

ELITE SEAT is an opportunity for first and second year commerce students at DeGroote to participate in experiential learning to advance their analytical ability, problem solving, creative thinking and collaboration skills. With ingenious biweekly workshops conducted by industry professionals, coupled with monthly case competitions sponsored by our industry learning partners, this program provides a forum for lower year undergraduates to gain perspective on the practice of business and develops innovative leaders that are ahead of the curve.

Over 50 students at the DeGroote School of Business apply to participate in Elite Seat. The Elite Seat leadership team methodically selects fifteen most suitable under year students who are then divided into teams of three.

Bi-weekly workshops, each unique to a specific discipline conducted by industry experts, will take place.

At the end of each month the five teams of three students are provided with a real world business case by an industry partner.

The teams create solutions by applying their knowledge and skills developed from previous workshops to deliver a final presentation of their proposal for the industry partner.

After thorough evaluation of each presentation, one team will be chosen by the industry partner and awarded for their proposal.
