To respond to the needs of the market and prepare students holistically for their careers, the UBC Sauder School of Business’ Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre launched a 3 year strategic plan to transform from a career centre to a personal and professional development centre. With that vision, the Business Co-op Program, one of many programs under the Career Centre, took a critical look at service delivery to ensure that student needs and KPIs were being met. As a result, the Program is seeing record high student engagement and work term outcomes. In this session, we will give a high-level overview of the Business Career Centre’s vision, how the Business Co-op Program adapted to needs of our students and practical takeaways as to how you can implement our strategies in your programs and career centres.
