"The Digital Marketing Development Program generated so much interest last winter that we decided to make it into a course. I am one of two instructors for the English class, along with Jonathan Simon. We wanted to do something different, so we partnered with PageCloud and Klipfolio to bring students a course which is innovative and practical. The course has no textbook and all student assignments are done on the website so they can get real-life experience; they build a personal branding website and practice the topics explored in class, all while developing a digital footprint that will help them to secure employment.  Read more ›

"I chose to specialize in Management because, in the future, I want to work for myself. I want to manage my own business one day and be my own boss. I am in Management to explore the diverse options and opportunities of owning a business. Being my own boss would also be a lot simpler and easier because I would be able to plan my own schedule and do things that I like. It would allow me to work on my hobbies, such as acting and volunteering. Being my own boss means I am in charge of my life and I'm not being micromanaged."  Read more ›

"I came to Telfer with an engineering background, and I enrolled in the Management Information Systems program before ending up in Accounting. So I had to make choices and I took advantage of the resources available to help me, three of which come to mind: being able to rely on the advice of qualified professors, the opportunity to be a teaching assistant — which helped me to be responsible and further my knowledge — and finally the academic specialists; it was through them that I was able to face job-related challenges and find an internship in an accounting firm with the Connexions Program. I find that Telfer helps students but also empowers them, thanks to the various opportunities offered. It is a solid feature that distinguishes it from other faculties and universities."  Read more ›

"Being a TA for the Business Communication Skills course (ADM 2381) has allowed me to help students develop useful public speaking skills and to effectively prepare them for all types of presentations they might encounter. It has also allowed me to have a noticeable impact on other students’ skills and confidence in terms of presentations. Seeing the progress some students make and the skills they develop throughout the duration of the course is really impressive."  Read more ›

"101 week was really fun as a guide this year. Experiencing it from a different perspective made me see just how much Telfer does to make sure the new students have fun. We worked hard to make it a great week. This year we introduced more mixed faculty activities which really helps people connect with others so now it is a week of opportunities to meet even more new people!"  Read more ›

"Being a student at Telfer meant having access to all 13 clubs that are a part of Telfer. From the first day I heard about CASCO, I knew this was the club I wanted to join because the club’s main purpose is to raise money for CHEO. Being on CASCO’s Sponsorship team has given me the opportunity to work with professionals from various industries whose companies believe in the importance of corporate social responsibility. Together, we raise even more money for CHEO with each passing year. Being on the CASCO team has enriched my Telfer experience through the lasting friendships I’ve made with my teammates, and the business relationships I’ve created with industry professionals."  Read more ›
