“Being part of the case competition 
teams was a great opportunity for me,” 
he says. “I was able to improve my

Saulo Ferreira came to Capilano University 
from Brazil with a plan to earn a business 
diploma in an English-speaking country. 
However, after taking his first accounting 
course, he fell in love with the subject 
and decided to pursue a Bachelor of 
Business Administration as the basis for 
a CPA designation. Saulo was able to 
apply his class learning in his role as 
president of the Capilano U Marketing 
Case Competition Association. He led 
the senior team to victory at the 2016 
Western Canadian Business Competition, 
where he was named Best CEO and VP 
of Finance.
