“Being in Telfer has opened up so many opportunities for me. I discovered a club named Telfer Law Society where I met people who share the same goals as I did. This pushed me to learn, grow, and become the best version of myself. I am grateful for everything I have learned, especially being able to manage a perfect work/school/personal life balance.”  Read more ›

"My third year has been great so far! It’s more fun, because I get to specialize and learn more about my area, Marketing. The class sizes are smaller now than in first and second years, which means there’s more time to talk to professors.  Read more ›

“The Capital Markets Program (CMP), also known as Telfer Capital Fund (TCF), gives students the opportunity to gain real-life experiences in financial investment during their school years. Through listening to different speakers that came in to discuss what their jobs are like, I had the opportunity to better understand what working in the field of Capital Markets looks like. I am thankful for my experience with the CMP thus far. I have been on a steep learning curve. I have had the opportunity to not only develop valuation skills but also apply the knowledge acquired to real-life scenarios. I feel like I’ve gotten accelerated through school! I would encourage anyone who is passionate about the capital markets to apply to join the CMP. For those who are still in the discovery phase, I would encourage them to come to workshops hosted by the program to get a feel for what it really is and ask questions.”  Read more ›

“For me, choosing Telfer was an easy decision. After attending some of the info sessions offered by the University, I was able to gain valuable information on the CO-OP program. This program will provide me with the opportunity to meet and engage with potential employers, which will be very beneficial, especially when I enter the workforce. This was one of the many reasons that I chose Telfer, and I think it is one of the reasons that you should too.”  Read more ›

''When I started first year, I struggled to decide whether Telfer was the right place for me. This year, by getting involved in the Telfer Finance Society, I feel like an integral part of the School. As marketing director, I have had the opportunity to work with an amazing team, expand my network, and gain real-world marketing knowledge. I urge students to get involved:  it helped me feel like I truly belong here and now I know that I am where I am supposed to be.''  Read more ›

“After attending Telfer’s open house and watching a panel of older students talk about their experiences, I was struck by how some students had managed to make so much out of just four years. I made my decision to come to Telfer the second I walked out of that room. However, something I didn’t expect to feel in my first month of university was isolation. Since I come from Ottawa, I didn’t feel the initial pressure to build connections with the people in my program, but since I didn’t force myself to make friends, I found myself feeling alone. It has been difficult, but I’ve made an effort to get out there and talk to people, and I think I’m on my way to finding a good balance. One step I took was applying to the Women in Management Network as a first year representative. I hope that by the end of these next four years I leave Telfer with a better understanding of myself and my abilities. I am aiming to take advantage of as many opportunities as I possibly can in order to make the most of my time here and would recommend anyone in their first year to do the same!”  Read more ›

“I was scared to major in accounting initially because I had heard how demanding the course load was and how "boring" the subject was. My parents told me to do something more "exciting" like finance so that is what I majored in initially. I thought I was on the right track but recently I realized that I find my accounting courses much more interesting, and it's something I actually really enjoy doing and learning about. I'm grateful that the first two years of this degree was identical for all majors, it gave me enough time to get an idea of what I actually want to do in life and I was able to switch without taking a step back. Thanks Telfer!”  Read more ›

“I would say my third year has overall been a success so far! After a rewarding year as a Career Centre Ambassador, I decided to return this year and continue to make the most out of my Telfer experience. After finishing my first co-op term over the past summer, I was ready to come back to a semester of school. I was excited to have a more balanced course load with greater variety- I began to dive into the Management specific courses and have some flexibility in choosing electives. During this semester, I found I had fewer midterm exams and more papers/group assignments to complete compared to first and second years. Although it was a change with all the essays piling up, I determined a strategy early to break up the amount of work to make it less overwhelming.”  Read more ›

“During first year, I found everything super easy, I was doing well in school and was able to easily make friends. So starting off it was a great experience. When second year came along I struggled with school, classes were getting hard and that’s when I started working two jobs and got into clubs. However, since I didn’t have time management skills yet, it led to me not being as happy as I could have been.   Read more ›
