In business, like in every other aspect of life there are so my acronyms that it begins to get hard to keep track of what each acronym stands for. Acronyms can come from anywhere; you use them all the time in conversations with friends TTYL, LOL, and LMAO. In business there are many different acronyms as well such as; GDP, PPP, GNI, and the list can go on! But the one I will be focusing on is one that it is important to Humber and marketing students in Ontario.
OCMC which stands for Ontario College’s Marketing Competition, OCMC consist of various competition formats such as quiz bowl where competitors are asked various marketing definitions. As well as a case analysis exists where each competitor looks at a case and tries to define the problem and come up with various solutions to that problem. It seems to me that not too many people outside of the marketing world, are aware of how much of a big deal it is to be apart of or compete in OCMC. Just picture all the best marketing students in Ontario competing with each other.
For business it’s a perfect opportunity to pick out the next Steve Jobs or the next person to have that million-dollar idea. It is important for OCMC to continue and to get the message across of how important it is for students to try out and participate in OCMC.
It is also an enjoyable experience to compete with other great marketing students! It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to both the team as well as to yourself, to put in the effort and long hours of reading, preparing as well as practising to become a great OCMC competitior.
I am looking forward to the OCMC, I will be competing in the case study analysis for retail I hope everyone will wish me luck as I prepare for the challenges a head!
