Business Students Compete in Inaugural Online Marketing Competition

Humber hosted its first-ever online Humber College Marketing Competition (HCMC) after the difficult decision was made to cancel the annual province-wide Ontario Colleges Marketing Competition (OCMC).

With enthusiastic support from a team of dedicated and passionate faculty and committed Program Advisory Committee (PAC) Members, Humber was able to successfully hold the HCMC class and host an in-house competition including a smaller version of the wildly popular Quiz Bowl with four additional colleges on December 1st, 2020.

Congratulations to the student teams who won the events included in the HCMC 2020 Competition!
