Chippewa takes 2018 Nipissing Business Challenge

On October 26th, the School of Business hosted the 2018 Nipissing Business Challenge. Approximately 60 students from West Ferris Secondary School, Chippewa Intermediate & Secondary School, and École secondaire catholique Algonquin participated in the all-day event.

This year’s case considered the product offerings and market position of Pillsbury’s Häagen-Dazs. Competing high school students were required to create a promotional campaign for the company and present it to various Nipissing School of Business faculty and staff members. All students represented themselves commendably in the competition.

The School of Business would like to congratulate Sabrina Lucci, Drake Dietrich, and Andrew Robinson, from Ms. Prisco’s class at Chippewa Intermediate and Secondary School for placing first in the Business Challenge!

These students were presented with the Nipissing Business Challenge Bowl and will receive $500 towards tuition at Nipissing University.

All first-year School of Business students are required to take Introductory Financial Accounting I - ACCT 1106 and Introductory Financial Accounting II - ACCT 1107.

Some students who have never taken accounting before can find these courses challenging as they do not have a strong foundation in the basic accounting rules and terminology. This self assessment quiz will help give you an idea of what will be covered.

There are two PDF files below that you may download. One file contains the quiz and the other file contains the answer key.
