Battle of The Ads!

Battle Of The Ads (BOTA) is UBC Sauder’s only creative competition where students are tasked with developing a 360 marketing campaign and a 30 second video advertisement for an exclusive partner company. Student teams of 3-4 tackle a creative brief provided by the sponsor company, in which the worthy finalist are then invited to present their ingenious and creative ideas to representatives of the partner company in an action-packed evening. In past years, our students had the opportunity to develop campaigns for companies such as Polo Red by Ralph Lauren, Native Shoes, and Arc’teryx.

UBCMA Sales Comp!

Our high intensity sales competition is tailored for those students with a wish to show off their best sales pitch. Individual students play the role as a sales representative and present their pitch to the sponsor company. We provide them with a project brief two weeks in advance so that they can prepare for the pitch and try to secure a deal. On the big day, representatives of the sponsor company will act as the client and judging panel. Winning students have received interviews and/or internships with the sponsor company, which in the past have included Pepsico.
