"The professors within this program provided real-life work experiences and technical skills that will be beneficial in my future career. If it weren't for this program, I would not have been selected to receive a scholarship and pursue a Master's Degree in Limerick, Ireland. Fanshawe truly believes in the future success of their students and provides amazing opportunities through their agreements with other universities around the world. I would highly recommend this program for anyone who wants learn in an innovative environment and be encouraged to think outside the box."

"The Early Childhood Leadership program really does prepare you well for grad studies. The educational and social justice topics we had discussed in ECL, the ability to critically read academic journal articles and the feedback on papers, as well as the capstone project have set me up to be a solid graduate student. In fact, a moment that I am quite proud of, two of my professors mistook me for a doctoral student based on my ability to present, my perspectives on various topics as well as my writing. For some students in my classes these discussions on issues are the first time they have thought about them. With my background I had already discussed many of the current educational topics and I am well prepared to critique or argue different perspectives."

"From classroom to professional practice settings, my professors and instructors were with me every step of the way, and were always encouraging my peers and me to think critically and holistically while we were translating theory to practice in clinical labs and the real world. Not only was the program able to provide me with the knowledge, skills, and experiences that I needed to be the best nurse I can be, but it also presented me with a multitude of leadership opportunities that have opened doors for me and allowed me to explore the many different avenues of this dynamic profession."

"I can't believe the difference in the version of me who walked into Fanshawe in September 2012, and the version of me who walked across the stage graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in June 2017. While I have learned so much since joining the "real world", I know my experience in the Human Resources Management degree program has prepared me in ways I never thought possible. The environment is one that leaves you wanting to learn, and wanting to be better -- and the staff and professors could not be better mentors and connections to have on your side fighting for your success. While leaving this chapter was difficult, I know I can succeed anywhere because of my degree experience at Fanshawe."
Pathway: Business – Human Resources Diploma → Human Resources Management Graduate Certificate → Honours Bachelor of Commerce – Human Resources Management
Current position: Human Resources Assistant, Canaccede Financial Group
"Taking the Digital Marketing degree was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Classes such as Google Analytics and Finance prepared me for my current position. If I am ever in doubt I know I can reach out to my professors for guidance, they truly care for the students and they want us to succeed. My co-op position allowed me to have the minimum experience that most entry level jobs required and in order to stand out from other applicants, I also got involved in extracurricular activities through my degree such as the Ontario College Marketing Competition and the mentorship program. After graduation, I found a job that was the right fit and I feel really lucky to have this position. I would definitely recommend this program, and Fanshawe in general, to others!"
