Leading to victory

September 7, 2016

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. “Being part of the case competitions teams was a great opportunity for me,” he says. “I was able to improve my leadership skills by bringing together differing points of view.” Saulo started work at one of Canada’s largest accounting firms right after his graduation.

“The extracurricular experiences that Capilano offers bring student learning to the next level. We are able to apply our knowledge in the case competitions—it adds value to our learning and differentiates us from other universities.”
