Competition and Conference Funding


Within the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics, the Business Career Development Centre and Lang Students' Association are proud to support professional development activities and experiential learning opportunities that allow students to engage in practical applications of theories learned through their business education (i.e. attending industry related competitions and conferences).
There is a formal application process in place for students seeking financial support for these learning opportunities. Applications are reviewed by a committee on a monthly basis and funds are allocated accordingly.
