Humans of Telfer – James

Q: Why did you choose Telfer?

A: I chose Telfer over other business schools in Ontario as it is the only one of two that offers bilingual courses. Laurentian University was much further away from home than uOttawa. Given the scale of Ottawa as a job market, CO-OP opportunities are also better and more exciting in the capital. I hope my experience at Telfer continues to be great.

Q: What do you like the most about Telfer?

A: What I like the most about Telfer is the fact that it’s a school at the University of Ottawa, so bilingual courses are available. I really like that this option is available, as I enjoy taking classes in both languages to preserve and sharpen my language skills.
