JDC Central is a three day event that showcases academics, athletics, social spirit, and charity. Delegates compete in academic case competitions, parliamentary style debates, sports tournaments and social competitions. The event lets students showcase all aspects of university life from school spirit and dedication, to academic skills and teamwork. JDC Central, emanating from Quebec in 1989, is Canada’s fastest growing business student competition. In 2016 there were over 700 competitors from 14 major business schools, making JDC Central one of the largest competitions around. JDC Central boasts the most talented and well rounded students from across Central & Atlantic Canada.

Trent’s performance last year was very strong, with three teams coming in 6th place, this year Trent looks to continue to improve and show that no one should underestimate the power of the #TrentMachine.

This year, the competition will be held in Ottawa from January 6th – 9th, 2017. Trent University will send 48 of our best and brightest to Toronto to compete at JDC Central 2017. If you’d like to join the team, sponsor our delegates or just follow the action as it happens, you’ve come to the right place.
