Team Ambassadors

At the University of Prince Edward Island, students are encouraged to develop their full potential and are eager to contribute to the betterment of local and global communities. Our students showcase leadership by being welcoming, respectful, and vibrant. In February, the 16 teams participating in the Championship Round will be able to see for themselves!

Here are the individuals who will serve as Team Ambassadors for NIBS 2019. Their roles are to:

  • Connect with teams prior to the competition
  • Answer questions about Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and the University Prince Edward Island (UPEI)
  • Give participants a sense of what to expect when they arrive
  • Serve as their team’s primary host and best friend while at the NIBS Case Competition

Each team has been assigned its own Ambassador. Participants and coaches are encouraged to contact the individual designated for their school.
