Business Consulting Experience
Sachelle Magloire-Prosper, EMBA 2014
A/Director, Strategic Finance and Costing Division, Canadian Border Services Agency
“A key highlight of my Telfer Executive MBA journey was the International Business Consulting Project to Guangzhou, PR China. This experience was transformational and crystalized my Executive MBA education/training amassed over many months. Our team project involved a thorough analysis and evaluation of an appropriate approach for our client to enter the market. The trip focused on in-country meetings to validate research and identify potential business partners. The outcome of eight months of dedicated effort was a deal worth $400M USD for the client company."

The Individual Business Consulting Project became the focal point of my Telfer Executive MBA experience. It provided me with an opportunity to shift my attention away from the corporate environment and focus on a personal cause; music education. I conducted an expansion feasibility study for a not-for-profit organization. The organization provides contemporary music instruction at no cost to at-risk youth within Vancouver. Under the direction of the founder and in collaboration with executive and faculty, the organization is embarking on an expansion program using the results of my research as a road map toward their goal of building a national legacy."

“The Telfer Executive MBA program provided me with the technical business tools I needed to deliver for my client. However, it was the big-picture thinking combined with a unique strategic perspective that made the difference. The Executive MBA program gave me the skills I needed to analyze, question and deliver effectively - this is where I added the most value."
Bernard Guite, EMBA 2017
Financial Analyst, Office of the Auditor General of Canada
“‘The Telfer Executive MBA program’s practical, hands on business consulting projects is what made it all real and connected to industry practices for me. Weaving the technical knowledge with the soft skills required to build relationships and make every project meaningful was the most significant part of the program that gave me the skills and attitude to succeed in the workforce. Leveraging the program’s connections and network to build an international business network has brought a lot of value to my ability to contribute on business projects globally."
