Canadian Association of Business Students

The UNBC CSS is a member of an organization called the Canadian Association of Business Students. The Canadian Association of Business Students (CABS) is a not for profit organization that represents over 70,000 business students from 29 universities in Canada. Their purpose is simple: to make every business graduate in Canada “global ready”.  This means that our students will be recognized internationally for superior talent and leadership.

They are the guardian of conferences and competitions for student leadership strategy discussion, professional development for leadership and practical skills learning. It is their responsibility to ensure the maximum quality and integrity of these events, as well as support organizing committees in the planning, logistics and fundraising. The CSS attends nationally recognized conferences put on by CABS every year to educate and foster growth in our own executive and to network with the brightest business students from across the country, sharing ideas and experiences.

In March of 2015, UNBC was given the honour of hosting CABS Roundtable, Canada’s largest and most prestigious student run conference. An annual affair, it connects over 300 of the brightest student leaders from over 28 of the top business schools across the country. Every year since its inception in 2008, CABS Roundtable has been hosted in a different Canadian city. Generated from discussions involving business student societies across Canada, the renowned CABS Roundtable conference began as an idea – the leaders of these organizations saw an opportunity in meeting and sharing best practices, resources, and ideas in order to collectively move their societies forward and deliver exceptional value to their constituents.
