Past Organizing Teams

In 2009, former classmates at the University of British Columbia Philip Chua (1st Year Analyst), Dipak Kamdar (4th Year) and Amardeep Chandi (2nd Year) formed a team to organize the First National Investment Banking Competition held in January 2010 in Vancouver.

Since inception, many team members have continued the effort to create an internationally-recognized event for business students to compete and expand their professional networks. Many past team members have moved on to notable careers in New York, Hong Kong, Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary, and continue to support NIBC.
