Fashion Students Gain Experiential Learning in Global Retail Operations Course

Fashion Students Gain Experiential Learning in Global Retail Operations Course

Thu, May 16, 2019

Over the last 8 years, our Fashion Arts and Business program have established a WIN-WIN collaboration with the Vaughan Mills Shopping Center.

This collaboration provides our 4th-semester students the opportunity to work hands-on with Mall Leasing, Marketing & Tourism Management teams to create business concepts that meet the evolving needs of the retail center. Students draw on their knowledge from previous semesters and in the Global Retail Operations course are assigned their mission: To think like retail consultants and create or source business concepts that shopping centers can implement.

As a group, students review global retail trends, mall demographics & psychographics and select a business concept worth exploring. They prepare strategies for visual presentation, marketing and customer experiences that bring this concept to life. Their sales pitch to the mall management team provides them with an opportunity to hone their presentation and selling skills. This year our managers from Vaughan Mill said: “The students had great ideas, presented well and really did a great job in coming up with unique experiences. We will surely take some ideas away with us." In addition, Vaughan Mills took the next step, " We were so impressed by the caliber of students that we would like to arrange a JOB FAIR at Humber College.”

Congratulations to all of the students, who will be able to add this element of experiential learning to their personal resumes and portfolios. Thank you to their Professor, Anna Zamparo.

The visit in Denmark was a peek into a world where sustainability is weaved into the everyday activities of the Danes and has become a permanent and inseparable part of their lives: from the daily commute with bicycles (2:1 per person) to sustainable buildings, healthy and slow food, sustainable textiles and fashion and the stress free Danish way of living "hygge".

During the trip, both sides explored opportunities for collaboration and deepening the partnership. As a result of the trip, our first Fashion Management and Promotions Graduate Certificate student will complete an internship with two Danish companies working in sustainable fashion and shoes.

Second Annual Aboriginal Moot Held at the Lakeshore Campus

Thu, May 16, 2019

On April 12, 2019, Paralegal Degree students held the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot at the Lakeshore Campus. 

The Aboriginal Moot was the capstone assignment for students in the Indigenous Legal Perspectives course. To open the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot, students toured the Indigenous Cultural Markers recently installed at the Lakeshore campus.

The Faculty of Business is meeting Humber’s aspirations pursuant to the Indigenous Education Protocol, and has responded to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, by modifying the Paralegal Degree Program curriculum. The new course compares Aboriginal Law with Indigenous Legal Traditions. Professor Shirley Wales, a lawyer and former Adjudicator for the survivors of the Indian Residential Schools, designed and taught the new course. She incorporated research from her PhD studies, including the Indigenous Legal Traditions course taught by an Elder.

The Aboriginal Moot follows the format of the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. Most Canadian Law Schools participate in the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. The Moot is also known as “The Talking Circle”. Students engage in roundtable negotiations with the aim of reaching a consensus-based settlement. They rely on Indigenous Legal Traditions, as well as provincial, federal, and international law. The students were honoured to be joined at the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot by Associate Dean James Cullin, and by Paralegal Degree faculty members Dr. Karen Schucher and Dr. John Allen.

As well, thank you to the many HRT team members who supported the students throughout this course and semester. To Janet and Stephanie, thank you for attending the presentations to provide moral support and to meet with the industry partners.

Two student teams from the Accounting Diploma programs participated in the Ontario College Accounting Case Competition, hosted by Sheridan College.

Our teams were part of our Case Competition course, which provides a new business case each week for students to prepare under time pressure, and present in front of their peers and professors. The course is a great way for students to improve their communication skills and hone their business acumen. The teams we sent to the final competition were a shining example of the excellent students coming out of our Accounting Diploma program.

Due to an administrative glitch, our two teams competed against each other in the preliminary round, which meant that only one team could qualify for the finals competition. During the finals, our team performed well, finishing in third place, province-wide!

We are very proud of all of our Case Competition students, and the faculty that volunteered to coach teams outside of class time! We look forward to many more successful competitions in the future!

Thu, April 11, 2019

Ensuring good physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace is vitally important for all Canadians.

Through an interdisciplinary approach between the Business School and School of Health Sciences, Dr. Suzy Casimiro and her students were invited to visit, investigate and advance the physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) at Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home, Etobicoke.

Under the supervision of the Executive Director at Humber Valley Terrace, Marjorie Mossman, students identified the physical hazards and explored possible psychosocial hazards of workers within this healthcare setting. By also adopting sections of the new and – the first of its kind in the world, Canadian Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (CSA-Z1003-13), students explored the many ways that jobs can affect health and safety, from potential exposures to physical hazards, to work-related mental health concerns within healthcare settings.

As a result, students were able to make recommendations on how to improve the policies, procedures and offer health & wellness program options. Overall, recommendations focused on improving the physical and organizational environment to lessen risks of injury and illness; from integrated protection from work-related safety and health hazards to the promotion of injury and illness prevention and the introduction of wellness programs- all to advance both workers’ well-being and the organization.

The Value of Study Abroad from a Student’s Perspective

The Value of Study Abroad from a Student’s Perspective

Mon, April 08, 2019

Meet Sagar Vankwani from the Bachelor of Commerce, Accounting Program.

Sagar had the opportunity to participate in a study abroad program at Hungkuang University in Taichung, Taiwan, which he describes as the best two weeks of his life: 

"In summer 2018, I had the opportunity to participate in a study-abroad program at Hungkuang University in Taichung, Taiwan. It was a two-week program, and arguably, they were the best two weeks of my life. No exaggeration.

The program was a complete package in itself. Going there, I didn't have really high expectations, but I soon discovered many of the best things that come in life are unexpected. The Taiwanese students went out of their way to help us. The program itself was very well organized. We had Chinese language classes every morning accompanied by different vocational workshops and field trips to the most exotic places in Taiwan.

Apart from all this, the program taught me something that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. I learned more about myself and my skills and abilities. I also learned some things about me that I was unaware of like my adaptability to ambiguous situations—something I could not learn in the classroom. Through making new friends from a variety of countries, I now understand the value of making lasting connections as a way to expand my personal network. The memories I made will last a lifetime. I even found a home in Taiwan—a loving mother that calls me her son. I am still in touch with her and all my new friends. I've promised them that I'll visit Taiwan again soon.

Out of all the advice that I can give to other students, I would just say: Close your eyes to any excuses. Pack your bags and just go! I would like to thank Humber’s Business School for selecting me to participate in this program. I feel honoured and grateful for the opportunity and the experience I had."

REC Students Impress Guests with Their Business Pitches

Thu, March 14, 2019

Having a good business idea is just the first step in starting a successful business.

Our Recreation and Leisure students know first-hand the steps involved; having created unique business ideas of their own as a part of their Entrepreneurship class. On March 5th, we held an Entrepreneurship Tradeshow here at Humber College. At the event, our students had the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to faculty and staff members of the Humber Community as well as guests that work within the industry.

When planning a business, it is important that those behind the business fully understand all the logistics involved, and are able to communicate them effectively to potential investors. Many logistics needs to be considered in the planning process such as establishing the target markets, conducting a SWOT analysis and planning the finances. During the Sales Concept Fair, our students were able to demonstrate their knowledge by pitching their business to the guests in attendance. The guests were also encouraged to challenge the students by asking questions regarding their business plans that may not have been answered during the original pitch. This allowed our students to exercise speaking in front of unfamiliar faces and encouraged them to be prepared for any question a potential investor may have. The students have many great business ideas, and several students plan to bring their vision to life in the near future.

Many thanks to the industry guests and Humber community who took time out of their busy day in order to attend our Entrepreneurship Tradeshow. Your presence made all the difference!

A group of students attended the 45th ToP CAFP (Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals) Toronto Professionals Celebration and Fundraiser.

This is an annual event orchestrated to raise money for student bursaries. The CAFP has affiliated Student Branches, and we at Humber have one of the most thriving branches

This year’s event was held at the Boulevard Club, and was a formal Black-tie event. The Dean of the school of HRT sponsored a table giving several of our students the opportunity to attend the event. This is great way to give back and support our students, as the money raised from this event is going towards student bursaries. In addition, it also gives our students the chance to network with industry professionals.

The money raised during this fundraiser will be given out during the CAFP Student Awards Night on March 18th, 2019. Good luck to all of our student applicants!

International Development Degree Alumnus Secures Job Post-Graduation

International Development Degree Alumnus Secures Job Post-Graduation

Wed, February 06, 2019

Ryan Geleynse, an International Development Degree grad, began working with EduDeo Ministries as the Eastern Canada Key Relationship Manager.

 

Upon graduation from the International Development Degree at Humber, Ryan Geleynse began working with EduDeo Ministries as the Eastern Canada Key Relationship Manager. EduDeo is an organization that works to advance and support Christian education around the world. Ryan’s job is to build relationships with EduDeo’s donors, whether households, schools, churches or foundations, and to find alignment between their passions and the organization’s projects.

Ryan secured a placement during his degree with World Renew, an organization linked to the Christian Reformed Church. His placement in the Global Volunteer Department became a source of income and employment as he completed his degree. World Renew places hundreds of volunteers in roles around the world every year to respond to disasters, work in community development or to service communities. Ryan loved that the organization’s volunteers would range from students to retirees.

Ryan says, “I’m so thankful for education I received at Humber. My degree provided a critical lens for engaging some of the challenges within the sector. I can approach our donors with confidence, knowing I’m there to advocate on behalf of our partners, providing necessary nuance to conversations that may head off the rails, otherwise. However, I miss the readings, the papers around topics I found provoking, and classroom discussions we had at Humber.”

Ryan married during his time at Humber College. His wife works in the international development field, too; however, her career has been suspended as she gave birth to their first child in July, Oliver, a baby boy. Congratulations!

Wed, February 06, 2019

In what has already been a fantastic year for the IMPG Program, all current students were hired before the end of their first semester.

In what has already been a fantastic year for the Insurance Management Program (IMPG) at Humber, all current students were hired in the insurance industry before the end of their first semester. Four students were even hired within the first three weeks of the program!

All of the IMPG students have now been hired part-time allowing them to pursue their full-time studies, with the potential of leading to full-time roles upon graduation.

These opportunities also allowed students to fulfill their 160 hour work placement component, learn the inner workings of the insurance industry, develop their professional network, and gain valuable experience.

IMPG students have had the chance to experience what they have learned in the classroom, such as working with insurance policies, and handling auto and property claims. Some students have even been promoted to appraising, and specialty lines units within their respected companies.

With a huge talent crisis on the rise with 27% of the industry expected to retire in the next 5 years, the Humber Insurance Management Program has worked vigorously to establish strategic partnerships with best in class companies in the industry.

A huge thank you to Claims Pro, Crawford and Company and Hub International for providing these opportunities to the Humber’s Insurance Management students. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Fashion Innovation Within Take Back The Tap

Tue, December 04, 2018

Fashion Management and Promotions students visited the Humber Lakeshore Welcome Center to explore the impact of waste on our environment.

The fashion industry is one of the most impactful industries in waste and pollution. There are many things that we can do to eliminate waste, such as: reducing consumption of non-sustainable products, choosing to buy local or Canadian-made products that have not travelled around the globe, and finding ways to reuse garments and accessories in order to reduce the amount of textiles ending up in landfills. The visit reinforced Humber strategic priorities of career-ready citizens and innovation in education.

Event Management Alumni Turn Capstone Project into Permanent Venture

Wed, November 07, 2018

A group of Event Management alumni got inspired by the success of their Capstone event, SheBoss, and decided to turn it into a permanent venture.

Together with their moderator, Michelle Cowell (Humber PAC member), they launched their second event, a panel discussion called “SHE BOSS - The Raw Truth & How-To’s!” on October 21, 2018, just six months after their Capstone project. This time the conversation was steered toward the “raw truths” associated with being a woman in business.

The event was sold out two weeks before the date and was a great success. The event raised money for two charities: The New Beginnings Support Program and The 100 Wells Malawi Project run by Humanity First.

Humber Paralegal Journal Showcased at AAfPE Conference

Humber Paralegal Journal Showcased at AAfPE Conference

Wed, November 07, 2018

The Humber Journal of Paralegal Access to Justice created a sensation at the National Conference of the American Association for Paralegal Education.

Thomson Reuters had a book display and allowed the Humber Journal to be included on the display. The sales representative stated that most of the delegate traffic was directed at the Humber publication. There is no similar journal published in the United States by paralegal programs. The regulation of paralegals in the Province of Ontario is far ahead of any similar program in the U.S. Only Washington State and Utah has limited license legal technicians (LLLTs). A copy of the journal was provided to Debra Geiger, President-Elect of AAfPE, and to Ruth Stevens, of Grande Valley State University in Michigan.

Ningbo Students Attend Orientation Program at Humber

Mon, October 01, 2018

Humber welcomed 62 students from Ningbo University for an orientation program before the final year of their Business Administration program.

Having completed two years of business management study at our partner institution in China, students learned what is needed to be a successful post-secondary student in Ontario. The two education systems are different, and it is essential students understand what will be expected of them at Humber. The academic skills they learned during the August Orientation program will enable the students to adapt to a new style of teaching and learning. Using project-based learning, students had the opportunity to research a social problem common to both Canada and China, generate possible interventions and make recommendations in a final presentation and report.

To further improve their collaboration and problem-solving skills, students participated in Workshop Wednesdays. Students learned the importance of working collaboratively as a team to accomplish specific challenges. It has been a successful month full of learning and fun. Students are ready to begin their new academic year at Humber.

Insurance Management Program Achieves Great Success in First Year

Mon, October 01, 2018

In its inaugural year, the Insurance Management Ontario Graduate Certificate program saw tremendous success with a dedicated first cohort of students.

For those that don’t know, the IMPG prepares students for a variety of entry-level management career paths in the large and growing property and casualty insurance industry. Students can pursue careers in underwriting, claims, sales and others. Like all of the many programs at the Business School, the IMPG program is very demanding and requires students to complete not only Humber exams, but seven separate exams towards the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation. Students in last year’s program achieved higher CIP pass ratios than the overall national college average!

In addition, 95% of IMPG students in the program landed industry placement roles, with many of them landing full-time positions at best-in-class companies such as All-State, Aviva, Northbridge Insurance, Wawanesa Insurance, Crawford Independent Adjusters and Desjardins. The IMPG program success can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of Peter Madott, and a very committed and passionate faculty that includes Annette Palalas, Jason Mancini, Susan Kates, Troy Bynoe, Kelly Hopkins, John McNeil, Bill White and Patricia Cooper.

In its second year, the IMPG program looks to build on its achievements of 2017/2018 with an exciting group of students that are enrolled in the program.

Students Receive Excellent Results on CFA Level 1 Exams

Fri, September 28, 2018

Bachelor of Commerce - Finance students wrote the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2018 and 50% of them passed!

This is an excellent result given that on average, over the last 10 years, 40% of those writing the exam passed and most who write the exam are not recent graduates and many are 2nd and 3rd-time writers. We also had 2 students who graduated the year previously who did not pass on their 1st attempt and decided to re-take the CFA Level 1 exam. This time around, both of them passed, which brings the total pass rate of that year of students to 40%. This year, given the Humber BCom Finance Degree’s recognition as a CFA Institute Affiliated University, we are able to offer 15 scholarships to graduating finance degree students who write the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2019, which significantly reduces their cost to write the exam.

Parul University Students Participate in Leadership Beyond Boundaries Program

Parul University Students Participate in Leadership Beyond Boundaries Program

Mon, September 24, 2018

Students from Parul University, Humber’s academic partner in India, participated in a 2-week Leadership Beyond Boundaries program at Humber in August.

The students were introduced to systems and design thinking for social innovation. After selecting a complex social problem found in their home community they would like to explore more, the students used systems thinking as a tool to identify the relevant stakeholders and gain a better understanding of the system’s behaviour. Mapping the system allowed students to zoom out, learn how all the different parts of the system are interrelated and identify possible intervention points. Using a human-centred design approach, students then framed the problem and zoomed in on one solution that they could implement in their home community while being full-time students. By the end of the program, the Parul University students pitched a social enterprise as a solution to the problem. Both student groups revealed they hope to submit a proposal for start-up funding at Parul University in the following semester as they believe their solution is feasible and sustainable.

Humber Spa “Evaluapp” to Streamline Classroom Learning

Humber Spa “Evaluapp” to Streamline Classroom Learning

Mon, June 18, 2018

George Paravantes MFA IxD, Program Coordinator Multimedia Design and Development, has helped the Humber Spa develop their "Evaluapp."

"The Humber Spa App is a Tablet Application focused on moving the conversion forward on Mobile Learning tools in the classroom. The Tablet Application is focused on helping facilitate the “Moment of Need” and feedback to students as a Mobile Learning Support Tool.

The tablet application has been designed using Human-Centered Design methods to better understand both the lab technologist and student needs. The Tablet App enables lab technologists to mark more effectively and share student feedback in real-time. The classroom tablet scenario can be either an assessment or an evaluation.

Many of the in-process evaluations and assessments technologists use in labs tend to be on paper and require a transfer to a digital LMS system which can delay crucial feedback for students. Timely feedback can help to progress students more confidently in a project in class. Critical feedback at the right moments can sometimes create the creative confidence we look to instill in the students' project and work.

Finally, the tablet application has been purposely designed to be used not just by one program at Humber but any program or school across the college that evaluates or assess in-process work. It imports banner students list and lets the technologist create Assessments and Evaluations with a rubric in a fast intuitive gesture-driven touch Interface."

The 2-hour-long event on Friday, April 13th, 2018 in the LRC included a variety of games, food and drinks as well as a GoFundMe campaign. The event was a huge success, attracting many members of the Humber community and raising over $300! As with any project, reflection after completion is an important part of project management.

Ken Umali, a recent graduate of Humber's Bachelor of International Development program, is currently working in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Ken is working as a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Advisor for Uniterra. The M&E role involves tracking the progress of Uniterra programs, ensuring that the organization is meeting its goals and objectives on time, which are skills he learned during his time at Humber.

With Uniterra - a program jointly managed by 2 Canadian international development organizations, CECI and WUSC - Ken's responsibilities include co-designing, administering, and supervising data collection activities from project partners in Mongolia. This data is used to draft reports and monitor achievements to help the program meet its overall objectives of changing people's attitudes toward the real needs of the country and to reduce poverty.

"My time at Humber was amazing!" said Ken. "I feel that the ID program has given me a clearer understanding of the development industry & practice, along with a better understanding of my own vision for my future. The program faculty come with a wealth of experience, and have equipped me with practical skills that prove to be useful in the field."

Ken's overseas placement for his Bachelor's Degree was with the Emmanuel Development Association (EDA), a grassroots development organization based in Ethiopia. He worked as EDA's Program Support Officer in the organization's regional office just a few hours from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. With EDA, Ken tested his new skills during the implementation of USAID and Government of Canada-funded poverty reduction projects.

International Development Students Aid Canadian Forces in their Refugee Crisis Training

International Development Students Aid Canadian Forces in their Refugee Crisis Training

Tue, December 19, 2017

For two weekends, students from the International Development postgraduate program lived on Trenton Base, assisting with a large readiness exercise.

 

This exercise - which lasted 6 days - involved ID students and Canadian Forces members role-playing a refugee crisis scenario. Humber students played a variety of roles during the 6-day educational exercise such as international aid workers, UN employees, refugees and general civil society, while the military members played themselves.

The students were asked to participate in the exercise by Lt. Col. Allan Best, an alumnus of Humber’s International Development Management Certificate program as well as a frequent guest speaker at Humber. In the evening, Lt. Col. Best and the military members received feedback about the day's events from ID students, which everyone present found very rich and informative. Initially, the military was only looking for bodies to play roles; however, after this experience, they are keen to formalize the partnership such that this happens once a year.

The Humber ID students were able to learn valuable skills through this unique opportunity, such as problem-solving, thinking under pressure and teamwork. They were able to see first-hand how international military actors respond to humanitarian situations, as well as their limitations in those scenarios.

Thank you to Lt. Col. Allan Best and the Canadian Forces for inviting our students to take part in this wonderful exercise, and to our International Development students for being dedicated and professional participants.

The event was an information session about the Ontario Internship Program. Successful candidates will work in one of the following areas during two, 12-month assignments: Business and Financial Planning, Communications, Human Resources, Policy Development, Labour Relations, Information Technology.

The hour-long session was attended by over 50 students, faculty and staff from various Business programs. The session began with a presentation from Michael, informing students about the features of the Ontario Internship Program and the high possibility of securing a full-time job within the Public Sector upon completion of the two assignments. He also highlighted the fact that Humber is one of the select few Colleges in Ontario that has been added to the campus circuit and visited each fall by a Program Consultant due to the high level of success that past Humber Alumni have achieved within the program.

Following the presentation, students were invited to a Q&A session and on conclusion, were given added information about the website where students can access additional resources about this opportunity.

Professors Teach Entrepreneurship to Instructors in Ethiopia

Professors Teach Entrepreneurship to Instructors in Ethiopia

Thu, September 21, 2017

Peter Sirois and Jim Skinner of the Business School recently returned from an assignment in Ethiopia where the year is 2010.

Not only do Ethiopians have a different calendar from ours, (theirs has thirteen months) but the clock is different as well. In Ethiopia, 1:00 AM is what we’d call 7:00 AM, because their clock cycle starts at our 6:00 AM (which is around dawn) and goes to 6:00 PM (dusk) which is 12:00 for them. Confusing? “Not really,” says Skinner “because the Ethiopians are very accommodating to our customs and generally translate the time into one that makes sense for us.”

He and Sirois were delivering training workshops on “the teaching of entrepreneurship” for instructors in the Ethiopian college system. In an attempt to modernize the economy, the Ethiopian government wants all college graduates to be trained in starting up their own businesses. However, this is a huge challenge for the many instructors charged with this task, since they have little entrepreneurial training or experience themselves. As well, instructional materials are in short supply and many of the rural areas still lack reliable broad band service. But Sirois points out that “what they lack in resources, they more than make up for with enthusiasm and hard work.”

The Business School at Humber was a natural choice for this project since it has a long history of preparing colleges in developing countries to deliver entrepreneurship training. Humber has successfully conducted many of these programs in Asia, Africa, South America and the Caribbean. So, was Ethiopia different? “Yes and No,” Sirois and Skinner agree.

Instructors in Ethiopia are accustomed to using lecture-based teaching methods, often with instructors writing notes on the board and students copying. In the rural areas of Ethiopia, which, for the most part, contain a large portion of the population, teachers have limited I.T resources at their disposal. Sirois and Skinner’s challenge was to use the martials they had at their disposal, as well as using more interactive teaching techniques to engage the students.

In this regard, the two professors feel they were successful. They taught multi-layered workshops that combined lectures, lessons and discussions about teaching entrepreneurship with interactive instructional activities that engaged students. The enthusiasm of the students was very apparent, as they would frequently volunteer answers and comments and displayed great joy and humor during interactive activities.

Sirois and Skinner also discovered that returning to the year 2017 was an adventure in itself: "The environment is unique, partly because of the altitude,” says Skinner. “Addis Ababa is around 8,000 feet so you can get a direct flight in there from Toronto, but coming back, if the plane had enough fuel to get to Toronto, it would be too heavy to take off in the thin Addis air. So all flights home go through London or one of the European hubs, in order to refuel.”

On the other hand, Sirois points out, “The people of Ethiopia are pretty much the same as people everywhere else in the world.” Even if they are living in 2010.

All Work and No Play? The Ningbo Students From China Have Arrived at Humber

All Work and No Play? The Ningbo Students From China Have Arrived at Humber

Wed, August 16, 2017

Students from the Humber-Ningbo partnership program had a busy August after arriving in Toronto on July 31st. 

Participation in the five-week Orientation Program had students strengthening both their English-language and academic skills. The students had two deliverables at the end of the five-week program:

  1. A written report preceded by a mind-mapping exercise and the development of an outline using their research findings, and 
  2. A collaborative micro-workshop where student groups developed and facilitated a presentation and interactive activity for their peers.

The August Orientation Program provided the platform needed to introduce students to the academic skills that are critical to their success at Humber. But the August Orientation was not only hard work, the students also played hard.

If you were downtown Toronto on Saturday, August 12, you may have witnessed groups of Ningbo students running around the city completing their Urban Challenge. Students were given clues to find five different stations where they had to successfully complete a puzzling task before getting their next clue. An alumnus of the Humber-Ningbo program returned to develop the most difficult Urban Adventure yet.

Welcome to our Ningbo students. We wish you the best of success during your stay at Humber!

Humber Business Faculty Member Volunteers at Mongolian University

Humber Business Faculty Member Volunteers at Mongolian University

Mon, August 14, 2017

Sanjukta Das, a Business Placement Advisor at the Humber School of Business, could have spent her annual vacation relaxing at the beach.

But, instead, she decided to convert her three weeks of relaxation into an exciting, meaningful and life-changing experience.

Working with the Leave for Change program, Sanjukta travelled to Mongolia and volunteered at the Mongolian University of Science and Technology (MUST) as a Youth Employability Skills Training Advisor.

Leave for Change is a program that is a part of Uniterra and is managed by two non-profit organizations: World University Service Canada (WUSC) and Canadian Centre for International Studies and Cooperation (CECI). Humber College is partnered with Leave for Change and sponsors full-time Humber employees to participate and volunteer their expertise around the globe.

During her tenure at MUST, Sanjukta conducted nine workshops with final semester students. She taught them marketing, interviewing and networking skills, as well as how to transition from university to the job market.

Along with meeting an amazing cohort of eager, bright students, Sanjukta met with twenty Mongolian recruiters from the government and private sectors. She shared with the group her knowledge of hiring best practices and techniques in Canada.

By far, the highlight of Sanjukta's stay in Mongolia was the MUST Networking Breakfast Event. The event saw HR heads from twelve different organizations, including several banks, come to the MUST campus to meet graduating students. Sanjukta was able to see her hard work and instruction pay off, as students mingled and introduced themselves to business professionals. In fact, eight students gained employment out of the conversations they had at the event.

Overall, the event felt like deja vu to Sanjukta, as it was very similar to networking events held at the Business School.

"Leave for Change has re-energized and reinvigorated my role as a Business Placement Advisor on a deeper level," said Sanjukta about her volunteer experience. "I myself am surprised how totally immersed I was into a new country and culture, and how much I learned from the experience of others and also about myself."

Congratulations to Sanjukta on this amazing work, and thank you for volunteering your time and knowledge to such a vital, worthy cause.

International Development Student Meets Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

International Development Student Meets Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Mon, July 31, 2017

International Development student, Nathaniel Taylor, had the opportunity of meeting and speaking with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

 

Currently, Nathaniel is completing his work placement at the Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence nonprofit organization located in the Quebec village, Metis-sur-Mer. There, Nathanial is helping to serve the English speaking community in the area by mobilizing people and resources, and by promoting interests like improving their health services.

When he heard that the Prime Minister was making an appearance and speaking at a public event nearby, he immediately decided to attend after work.

At the event, Nathaniel had the unique opportunity to ask the Prime Minister if he had any advice for young Canadian professionals working in the international development field. Nathaniel also told the Prime Minister about his upcoming role as an Environmental Sustainability Officer with a Canadian organization called EQWIP HUBs working in Senegal.

His response was for Canadians in this field to work for smaller organizations who are working to improve the lives of women and girls. This is how we will achieve the greatest change in developing communities.

“This was a special moment for me,” said Nathanial about the Prime Minister’s response. “It has inspired me to do my best and effective work when I am in Senegal with EQWIP HUBS.”

Congratulations to Nathaniel on his success and best of luck with your work in Senegal.

Fashion Management Degree Students Apply their Experience During Capstone Course

Fashion Management Degree Students Apply their Experience During Capstone Course

Thu, June 29, 2017

Students in the Fashion Management degree program completed their capstone course this past spring.

The course was a major undertaking for the students, as they had to apply the knowledge, skills and experience they acquired throughout their years of study.

The objective of the 15-week course was to plan and design a start-up retail enterprise. Throughout the course, eight student groups had to create an original concept, focus on the customer experience and market the business. In fact, three groups substantially altered their business concepts within the first two weeks of the course. Everyone learned that adaptability and problem-solving are essential skills to have when planning a business venture.

Throughout the process, most students had to balance other courses, a full-time work schedule and personal commitments. It was an intense challenge, but it was an excellent lesson in time management and balancing priorities.

Thanks to Mark Stoiko, a Professor at The Business School, for teaching this class and offering students guidance and advice throughout the course. And thank you to the Fashion Management students in the capstone course for their hard work, creativity and dedication towards their business ventures.
