At UEC, we strive to provide students with engaging and thoughtful experiences by hosting a wide variety of activities that range from networking events to mentorships and professional development workshops.
Provide high quality events that encourage students to develop themselves on an academic and professional level.
Help students find their career path through networking opportunities with professionals and faculty professors.
Improve students' knowledge in fields relating to economic research, policy-making and the financial industry.
Serve as a bridge between students and the Department of Economics.
This event will provide students with the opportunity to interview with an experienced individual with various internship/job experience under their belt in the Canadian Finance sector. Students can take back from the event interview tips and tricks. Further, they will have the opportunity to ask questions and develop an understanding of how to go about the behavioural and technical preparation required for a finance interview. The objective of the event is to mentally prepare students on what to expect after they graduate and enter the job market.
Job Shadow Opportunity
The purpose of this event is for students to learn about a day in the life of the esteemed panelists as well as build connections and understand the workings of the system in their field of profession. Job Shadow is an event for 3-4 year UTM students which will start off with the three panelists introducing themselves and talking about their journey which has made them reach the path that they are on today. The event will go on for 1 hour during which breakout rooms will be opened. There will be three breakout rooms with 5 students and 1 panelist in each room.

Know the Difference Series
This two-part panel will host professors and industry professionals in each of the three fields of Economics, Finance & Management and give our peers the opportunity to witness a discussion that will deepen their understanding of these areas of study. What exactly is the difference between Economics, Finance and Management and what sets each stream apart? Our aim with this panel is to distinguish between the fundamentals of each of these three academic divisions and what each stream prepares one for in the professional world. It is our endeavour to clarify any misconceptions students may have regarding these fields, so as to aid them in making more learned academic decisions.
