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.

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

Founded in 2016, the Rowe Sports Business Society is a non-profit DCS umbrella society that combines students' passion for athletic events and corporate affairs. Despite primarily operating out of Dalhousie's business school, RSBS provides students across all degree fields and levels of study with equal opportunities to get involved. RSBS regularly offers activities such as bracket competitions, casual watch parties, and networking events, and, at the beginning of each semester, the opportunity to be paired with an industry professional through our mentorship program.
