Board of Advisors
The Board of Advisors, consisting of up to 10 standing members from various backgrounds, plays an advisory role in the microprogram. Its main responsibilities are to oversee relevant policies, program design and execution, review reports on fund performance and risk position, and provide advice on all matters for which the Telfer Capital Fund (TCF) and program need guidance. It also appoints the members of the Investment Committee. The Board is not responsible for the financial performance of the TCF.
The Investment Committee provides oversight, support, comments, and advice on pitch construction and other recommendations on portfolio management and on trading and investment decisions. The Committee is not responsible for the financial performance of the Telfer Capital Fund (TCF).
Opportunities to Get Involved
The program provides numerous ways for you to get involved and support the development of Telfer students. To learn more about any of the activities below, contact the Microprogram Capital Markets Program Manager.
Each academic year, members of the senior cohort of the program are paired with industry mentors. This is to guide students in their last year of study and help them prepare to start their careers in finance. The mentor’s goal isn’t to help find employment for the mentee, but rather to support the mentee by sharing one’s experience and providing advice throughout the academic year.
All mentors are supported by the Microprogram Capital Markets Program Manager and receive resources to guide them.
We would like to recognize the following mentors for the 2023–2024 academic year:
- Alex Dettman
- Will Hutchins
- Tina Liusun
- Lucio Milanovich
- Sheralyn Mills
- Catherine Philogène
- Tyson Rigg
- Sarah Riopelle
