Accounting Diploma Students Place Third in Ontario College Accounting Case Competition

Accounting Diploma Students Place Third in Ontario College Accounting Case Competition

Wed, April 17, 2019

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!

Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home

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."

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. It was an honest conversation about entrepreneurship, being your own boss, and putting in the work to make your dreams come true.

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.

Ningbo Students Attend Orientation Program at Humber

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

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

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.
