Celebration recognizes the success of our students "making more of global experience."
Recent graduates of York University’s Bridging Program for International Education Professionals (IEPs) will be celebrated at a ceremony on Monday, March 27, followed by a reception at the Sandra Faire and Ivan Fecan Theatre, Keele campus .
Seventy graduates will receive program certificates in business, technology and human resources streams. The certificate program, offered by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, helps IEPs transition into employment that matches their education, skills and work experience. The graduates are Canadian citizens or permanent residents from around the world, including Africa, China, Europe, Central and South Americas, South Asia and the Middle East. Additionally, 50 others are being recognised for career success in finding meaningful employment in the past year.
Funded by the Ontario Government and York University the bridging program gives IEPs a good understanding of Canadian business culture and the local context of their profession.
At the event, two of the graduates, originally from Iran and Ukraine, will talk about their journey to obtaining meaningful employment since attending the bridging program.
