Coaching Services

Coaching is recognized as an invaluable tool for developing individuals to reach their true potential and research supports that self-awareness is one of the key components of successful leaders of today.

Our ICF certified coaches are your personal thought partners and bring to the career conversation a breadth of experience as they guide you in the discovery of your own brand and career direction by using personal assessments, meaningful conversations, and providing tactical advice. By engaging in the process, you will courageously learn about yourself, what the world of work means to you, and your position in it.

Career Services and the coaching models are unique to the Masters' programs and are customized to meet the needs of the student groups they serve. Full-time students benefit from a robust coaching program that includes allocated coaching hours with their own assigned coach and two courses that focus on self-awareness and tactical job search strategies to help students navigate a career pivot. The part-time and specialty masters programs also have coaching and customized programming. The Executive MBA program has six dedicated Executive Coaches who are experts in their field and can provide guidance on topics such as work/life balance and starting your own business.

Career Management Platform
CareerConnect is a one stop shop for all the information students will need in their career journey within the Masters programs. The software platform holds our job postings for students access, information and access to registering for our employer events and houses resources for case studies. Appointments with coaches can also be booked using the system and where information on summer internships and our unique mentorship program can be found.

Career Connect also houses hundreds of active contacts within businesses that we reach out to on a regular basis and is the main mode of communication to our employer network. Employers can log into Career Connect and post their opportunities for easy access to our talent. If you are an employer interested in learning how to use our system, feel free to contact
Internships are a wonderful way to apply learning from the classroom to the real world and develop skills that will help transition you in your career. Participating in an internship provides the opportunity to showcase your abilities to a potential employer, builds your professional reputation within and outside of the organization, and expands your network. Many organizations recruit for permanent positions from their internship talent pool.

Internships occur over the summer months (May-August) and recruitment can start as early as September (yes, the month you start the program) for positions the following year. To participate, you must be a student in good standing with the program and have completed all required career courses. Please note, we do not directly place students into positions, rather we give them the skills to be successful in the application process and teach them how to manage their career for success in the future.

Corporate Connections
Employers are interested in engaging with the talent from the School of Business are constantly hosting in-person and virtual information sessions, sharing information on panel discussions, presenting as a guest speaker, participating in career fairs and engaging in meaningful interactions to get to know the students and to help them learn more about their organization's unique value proposition. Find out about upcoming events on CareerConnect!
An intensive orientation launches the career experience for our full-time students and provides a starting point for reflection of your career journey. During the week, you will interact with your cohort to learn more about yourself and your team. The community that is built endures well beyond the week into the school year and beyond.
Alumni Support
Alumni play a critical role by providing key information and connections to a number of industries in Canada and around the world and we work closely with the Business Alumni Association to maintain and grow our connections by sharing events such as our recent alumni/MBA office joint event hosted in San Francisco. Alumni and their work are the greatest promotional tool of the program because they demonstrate, on a daily basis, what our students can do and many come back to visit when the companies they work for are recruiting.
