BBA HR Alumni; Mentor Photo; research

Pursuing an undergraduate degree at UFV is extremely unique, as students have the amazing opportunity to conduct research with their instructors. I was priviledged enough to work with Dr. Frank Ulbrich, and not only did I present my research at the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada Conference in Halifax in 2015, but I became a published academic author by the end of my degree. If you are passionate enough about something, or are willing to reveal your strengths and ideas to your professors here at UFV, the likelihood of an academic partnership occurring is quite high.
