Your Life as a Management Economics and Finance Student
Meet our Management Economics and Finance students
Student life in photos
We asked one of our Management Economics and Finance students to take photos of their favourite aspects of their student experience. See what Ryan Martin loves most about being a #GuelphBComm student.
"I am looking up the Canadian Natural Resources stock and financial analysis on the library's Bloomberg Terminals. Bloomberg Terminals are an invaluable resource that provides standardized, analyzed, real-time data in an intuitive and fast-paced interface. You can get a Bloomberg certification, which shows future employers you went above and beyond to learn how to use the tools of the industry."
Community Service on Co-op
"During my co-op experience at Softchoice in Toronto, the company had a day of volunteerism, so we went to clean up the garbage on the Toronto Islands, and had lots of fun."
Attending Class/Asking Questions
(Left to right)
“I am attending an 8:30am class on financial derivatives. In this class we learn the primary concepts involved in negating risks regarding commodity prices, interest rates, exchange rates and more. We learn how these can be applied meaningfully to businesses so they no longer have to focus on those risk factors, and instead focus on their operations. The material in the class is quite challenging, but I believe that perseverance and curiosity are some of the most valuable qualities to possess if you want to gain the most value from your education.”
"I am asking my professor, Laurent Cellarier, to explain a concept to me after his lecture. Asking professors questions is the single best advice I can give to an incoming student, as they are incredibly knowledgeable people who are often wanting to go above and beyond to help students succeed (especially at Guelph!)."
Residence Life Staff
"As a member of Residence Life Staff, I work out of the central programming office (The Hub), helping RLS members with programming and support."
