Engagement Breeds High Performance

uOttawa has embarked on a campaign to raise $400 million by 2020. We at the Telfer School are fully engaged in helping the university reach this ambitious goal. For our part, we will raise $40 million between now and then. We will devote these financial resources to accelerate and amplify our school’s five performance priorities:

Transform How Students Learn

We will transform our teaching methods and experiences of our students. We will achieve this goal by providing more learning opportunities inside and outside classrooms, and by making curricula and learning experiences more international in flavour and scope. This big change starts with the Telfer BCom—our flagship undergraduate program—and extends to our entire range of professional and research graduate programs.

Invest In Globalization

We will become a more international school by developing what we call a global mindset. This attitude will animate every action we take and very decision we make, most notably in the evolution of our curriculum.

Generate New Knowledge

We will undertake insightful research, whose findings will enable the world to better understand the complex problems we all face and navigate through the management challenges of tomorrow. We will achieve this goal by bolstering our research centres—Telfer Health Transformation Exchange, the Centre for Business Analytics and Performance, and CPA-Canada Accounting and Governance Research Centre—and by recruiting and supporting individual researchers and informal research groups throughout our school.

Foster Experiential Learning

We will launch and accelerate the management careers of our graduates by delivering real-life, hands-on learning experiences to our students and providing them knowledge, skills and development opportunities. Students will derive these experiences and opportunities through initiatives such as our mentorship and leadership programs, student case competitions, and funds that support students who compete under the Telfer School banner.
