Student Opportunity and Teaching

As a researcher and teacher at UNBC, I am thrilled about providing students opportunities for their success in study and career. Currently I supervise graduate students in MSc B.A. (Finance) program. I also supervise students in MSc independent research, Bachelor of Commerce Honours program, undergraduate research experience (URE) program and undergraduate independent research. Through these programs, students could deepen their understanding of Finance knowledge and apply the analytical skills learnt. While working on their research, my students received UNBC URE Award and School of Business Research Assistantship. They have successfully presented their work at academic conferences such as Administrative Sciences Association of Canada Conference, UNBC Research Week Conference and School of Business MSc BA research day conference.
