Backpacks to Briefcases Conference 2017

The transition to the first year of university can be difficult, and the Backpacks to Briefcases Conference aims to ease that process! With keynote speakers from RBC and PepsiCo and interactive workshops being run by recent graduates – this day long event could be the best way for you to not only learn about the real business world but the opportunities that are ahead of you here at DeGroote. Workshops will cover the following areas:

  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Accounting
  • Human Resources
  • Supply Chain

Join us on Saturday, September 23 at the Ron Joyce Centre in Burlington to kick start your career.

Busses will be leaving around 8:15 a.m. – so make sure you are in the DSB lobby before that! Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided. Tickets are on sale for $10 all week in the DSB lobby, and online on Eventbrite.
