Shaping the interface between student life and the business community
The Telfer Career Centre offers a variety of practical programs to complement Telfer’s strong academic foundation. Our programs develop employability skills, professional experience and engage students with professionals through networking opportunities. For many students, this dynamic with industry is a defining feature of their academic experience that they will benefit from for years to come.
We have taken innovative strides with three development program initiatives, which offer students experience in capital markets, professional management consulting, and digital marketing. These programs feature an extracurricular series of industry-led workshops and case simulations outside of their academic curriculum that students attend during their time with us at Telfer. This competitive opportunity exposes them directly to multiple professionals from a range of businesses, a meeting of minds that usually generates a mutual enthusiasm. Although only a limited number of students are chosen to participate through an interview process, these development programs allow Telfer to attract those businesses and organizations that are serious about engaging with our talent, as well as leading these organizations to participate in events aimed at the larger student populations. In addition to job opportunities and experience provided by the Telfer Capital Fund, an investment fund managed by students, the benefits from these initiatives have also led to the Digital Marketing Program being integrated into the course material for all marketing students.
In this and other ways, we make a priority out of expanding the interface between students and the business community, so that students find their fit. Programs such as these allow them to build a powerful network within the professional world and develop a significant profile for themselves. The result complements the undisputed academic qualifications of Telfer graduates, becoming yet another reason they are so highly prized.
