Rowe Marketing Association
The Rowe Marketing Association (RMA) aims to provide students interested in marketing and sales opportunities to develop their professional skills outside of the classroom. Our goal is to provide students with experience by working on real-world projects with organizations in the Halifax community, develop skills through case competitions and workshops, and learn about the industry through monthly speakers and networking events. If you're passionate about marketing, or just looking to learn more about it, RMA is the place for you.
JDC Central is a highly regarded Canadian case competition that features undergraduate business schools form across central and Atlantic Canada. The competition provides students with exposure to current issues faced in the business world on a daily basis and the opportunity to critically analyse such issues. The Rowe JDCC team is comprised of 50 delegates who will take part in a three day competition focused on academic cases, parliamentary debates, sports tournaments and a series of social competitions with the end goal of being named JDCC’s “School of the Year”.” Schools are evaluated not only on their performance in the various competitions, but also on their community involvement, sportsmanship, and school spirit.
Dalhousie Real Estate Association
The Dalhousie Real Estate Association (DREA) aims to build meaningful connections between Dalhousie students and Atlantic Canada’s commercial real estate industry. The DREA is sparking interest in commercial real estate at Dalhousie and creating a platform that allows driven students to take their knowledge of real estate to a higher level. We are building on our existing network in order to create unique professional development and educational opportunities for students, while also giving commercial real estate companies a greater presence at Dalhousie University and a chance to promote their brand to future real estate professionals.
Rowe Women in Business Association
Founded in May 2015, Rowe WIBA operates under the Dalhousie Commerce Society umbrella within the Faculty of Management. We currently have over 60 student members who believe in the importance of the advancement of women in business. Our mission is to inspire young women to take on leadership roles and pursue success.
Dalhousie Investment Society
The Dalhousie Investment Society (DALIS) does things a little differently than other student investment funds. Through our RBC Bloomberg Risk Lab, we manage a mock global macro hedge fund, the Maritime Fund. We trade a variety of products in markets that are unavailable to other student funds. This flexibility gives our members exposure to developing unique investment strategies, uninhibited by restrictions on what we can invest in. Once you join, you will develop unique investment strategies and work with our Portfolio Managers to implement them.
Rowe Sports Business Society
Our “game plan” as the Rowe Sports Business Society is to provide Rowe students with opportunities and knowledge in the sports business world. This society creates a platform for students to combine their love of sports with their passion for business. The goal of the Rowe Sports Business Society is to provide a gateway into the sports business industry for all Rowe students that has not yet been fulfilled by Dalhousie.
The Dalhousie Business Review
The Dalhousie Business Review is a non-profit student-organized media publication that is business-focused. We aim to cover hard-hitting issues both in the academic world, and the real world. On the Dalhousie Business Review, you’ll find journalism about topics ranging from business to politics to opinion pieces, and everything in between! Our goal is to be a conduit that starts conversations that are worth having.
