GRS allows me to pursue my passion of environmental sustainability professionally and gives me the opportunity to excel independently while learning critical hands-on learning assets.
Why did you choose the GRS specialization that you did?
Businesses globally have a significant impact on our society and the environment. I am passionate about learning about the environmental, social, and corporate governance principles to transition businesses to a greener economy. Through my specialization, I take courses within UBC Sauder School of Business’s Sustainability and Social Impact concentration which includes courses like COMM 312: Business Ethics Leadership, COMM 484: Sustainability Marketing, and SOCI 230: Shopping, Society, and Sustainability. In the future, I want to be a sustainability consultant for one of the Big Four Accounting firms focusing on helping major corporations achieve high-impact and sustainable change through data-driven people solutions.
What do you like best about the GRS program?
I value the importance of a diverse education as school is a central entity towards self-discovery. Being part of accelerated programs pre-university, I wanted to challenge myself by continuing my studies within the Global Resource Systems program. GRS allows me to pursue my passion of environmental sustainability professionally and gives me the opportunity to excel independently while learning critical hands-on learning assets through the course’s emphasize on relevant, real-world preparation and experiential learning.
