What competing students, coaches, judges and organizers say about FECC

"This competition focuses on learning and growth while having a good time."

Luis Diaz Matajira, FECC Coach (2013 onwards), Universidad de los Andes, COLOMBIA

"I was amazed at how perfectly the whole event was organized over the 5 days. The level of professionalism, coordination and collaboration seen amongst the organizers, ambassadors and coordinators is something unique and rare. Running such an event is a challenge that even professional event management specialists would possibly struggle with. To see a group of UVM students coming together and running the show the way they ran it - was just awesome! Hats off to you! Another amazing aspect of this competition is the friendly and welcoming environment throughout. Teams competing against each other still look out for each other, share ideas transparently and genuinely want others to do well. It is a magical thing to witness in today's world where competition usually means cutthroat. Kudos to the FECC team for fostering such a positive environment. I was promised by my coach that FECC will be an experience to cherish for a lifetime and he was definitely not wrong."

Bhaskar Ghadigachalam, FECC 2020 Graduate Competitor, University of Adelaide, AUSTRALIA

"This is a first class event.  It isn't just about competition, but camaraderie, learning, sharing and meeting diverse students and judges from around the world."

Jim Keller, Sponsor and Judge, USA

"FECC has been one of the best experiences I have had not only within the Grossman business school, but at UVM as a whole."

Ryan Waystack, FECC 2020 Senior Lead Coordinator
