The Faculty of Science Experiential Education program has formed a new collaboration with the Asian Business and Management Program (ABMP) at York to become a supporting partner of their Career | Fit Professional Experience Programs, an initiative sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).
Career | Fit programs are short online programs for currently enrolled university undergraduates and college students that supplement academic courses. Free to students who identify as Asian (whether South, East, Southeast, Central or West Asia), these sector-specific programs are designed to bridge theory to practice by featuring a hands-on, realistic project guided by a mentor from a Fortune 500 organization.
“We believe that experiential education can be a crucial factor in launching a successful career, and we are thrilled to be offering these opportunities at no cost to students thanks to the generous sponsorship of RBC and their focus on fostering greater diversity and inclusivity,” says Elena Caprioni, program director at ABMP.
"We're excited about Career | Fit programs because they offer the opportunity for students to stand out to potential employers by demonstrating that they take the initiative to learn relevant, practical new skills and can make a contribution from day one,” said Hugo Chen, interim assistant dean, Strategic Enrolment Management & Science Engagement
Programs, and director, International Collaborations & Partnerships. “These programs will help open career doors for our science students.”
