Flagship Events

Through our five flagship events, CABS offers the primary medium for business student collaboration across Canada. Our programming involves a combination of a leadership curriculum with moderated discussion, enabling the on-boarding of instrumental knowledge and rare insight to best prepare our members for success.

To develop effective student leaders, CABS has derived a curriculum of learning that is developed around the elected one-year terms of our member societies. Each event is intended to build upon the last, ensuring that each event offers a high level of value to those in attendance. The curriculum is balanced against current needs from our members with a long term growth strategy that aims to continually mitigate issues faced from our constituents while simultaneously focusing on constant improvement in the delivery of services and initiatives.

Subjects and issues covered at CABS’ events are recorded, databased, and made available through other mediums, such as a learning center on the CABS’ website. This system permits the implementation of a progressive learning environment where each conference can build upon it’s respective predecessor and innovate with new materials, yet members can easily access event resources from past editions as well.

As a rule, the curriculum ranges from facilitating strategy creation and delivering portfolio-specific tools to motivational speeches and group discussion. As previously mentioned, it adapts yearly to accommodate particular needs of different members, but is designed to have long-term benefit.

Of course, each event offers intangible benefits that go beyond the designed learning and resource-sharing; student leaders gain the opportunity to network with each other and forge national relationships that will continue to benefit them as they enter their careers and beyond. They also have the opportunity to connect with attending partners, alumni, and business leaders across Canada. Though the delivery of an effective learning curriculum remains the primary focus, these additional factors provide an immeasurable value which help make the CABS flagship conference the unique entities that they are.
