The Telfer School of Management has distinguished itself from other post-secondary institutions by the quality of its programs and its student experience. Our programs serve as a vehicle for transmitting our values. They bear the standard of our commitment to excellence. They reflect the knowledge and convictions that we have gained and made ours. They serve as a means to impart these to future generations of thinkers and actors. Our programs are at the heart of the School of Management’s mission of launching and accelerating the management careers of our students, while influencing the sustainability of organizations. We have an unwavering commitment to providing quality education that equips our students to become agents of transformation in the business community.
Our programs have passed the test of time; indeed, we now have over 27,000 graduates all around the world. Telfer offers a learning environment tailored to the needs of its students. With its restricted class sizes, our School values close interaction between students and their professors. In our classrooms, students and professors come together to exchange on the latest developments in the world of management and inform practices in industry.
The year 2018-19 was one of renewal for our programs. The Master of Health Administration (MHA) has been revised to ensure its relevance in today’s health care world. We also hope to see increased enrolment in the Graduate Diploma in Chartered Professional Accountancy, as students no longer have the option of challenging the Order's exam. On the MBA side, we are exploring new avenues to attract a wider variety of students while continuing to fulfill our mission.
In 2019, we registered a record number of enrolments in our research programs welcoming 13 new doctoral students. We look forward to celebrating the graduation of our first cohort of students from this program, which was launched in 2016.
Students are at the heart of what we do at Telfer School of Management, where the enriched learning experience we offer undeniably sets us apart from other schools. Many examples come to mind, such as the case study competitions, as well as the School’s charitable work, career development activities, networking with employers, and countless international travel opportunities. We offer learning activities suited to all taste and are proud to share this mine of wealth with all our students.
The years ahead look exciting! We are redoubling our efforts to attract and retain top talent. We do well to celebrate our ever-evolving programs, as they have made of our school one of Canada’s top-flight universities.
