ROCA 2023

Welcome to Canada’s Capital!

Building on the success of the previous year, ROCA was held in-person in North America for the first time in 2023.  A total of 16 universities from 10 different countries travelled to Ottawa, where they had an opportunity to experience the sights, sounds, and business community of Canada’s capital.

The competition kicked off with an Opening Ceremony on Sunday, October 22 and wrapped up with a Gala Banquet on Friday, October 27.  Matches were held in the Nicol Building, new home to the Sprott School of Business.  Wilfrid Laurier University took home gold thanks to an impressive final presentation.
