Students, welcome to a brave new world of teamwork

Students Take the Canadian MBA Oath

For the fourth year running, the Telfer MBA class participated in the development of an "MBA Oath of Ethics". This year 22 graduating MBA students participated in the annual oath ceremony at the Telfer School facility in Ottawa. Although recognizing that an oath in itself does not create an ethical individual, the student who participated in the event also recognized that the very act of taking an oath keeps the concept of ethics and integrity in doing business foremost in the minds of MBA graduates. This year's oath, developed collaboratively by the whole MBA 2013 cohort, focused specifically on accountability, social and environmentally conscious decision-making, and managerial responsibility to the broader stakeholder group of the company for whom individual graduates work. The history of the oath can be online. Read more ›

The 2013 Telfer MBA “in-Canada” international trip

The Telfer MBA program strongly values the international dimension of our program experience. Each year, we sponsor an elective course to Europe to explore high-performance in a European context [This link is no longer available]. The goal is to highlight the dynamics of doing business in an international business arena and to explore the complications of culture and politico-social elements that underlie effective business practice. Last year several of our non-Canadian international students suggested that coming to Canada was their version of an international experience. They asked: "Why don't we set up an ‘in-Canada international trip’ to help them explore business sectors in which Canada has strengths?" The same focus – high-performance organizations – could underlie the trip but the focus would be on examining the differences between doing business in their home countries and the Canadian context.
