The Ryerson University Finance Society (RUFS) and the Ryerson Engineering Student Society (RESS) are collaborating to host a four-part Excel workshop series. These four Excel workshops will be spread throughout the school year as two workshops will be in the Fall Semester and two workshops will be in the Winter Semester. The Fall workshops will be based on data analytics in Excel, while the Winter workshops will be based on advanced Excel skills and VBA.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about the various applications of Excel, no matter if their career path is in engineering or finance. Each workshop will be taught by a senior student, who will guide the students through a comprehensive project that focuses on the specific Excel skills that are the emphasis of that particular workshop. The goal of this event is that with each successive workshop, students will be able to build a strong foundation of Excel skills that they can rely on and be confident in as they move forward.

Also, as a part of this collaborative event, RUFS and RESS will be hosting a mid-year social. This social will take place at the end of the Fall Semester at which point two workshops will have been completed. Students from engineering and finance will have the rare opportunity to talk to each other in a casual setting where the night is for them to enjoy themselves before exam season begins.

During the event, each speaker will address the students about their particular career path as well as provide helpful advice for students trying to determine which path is ideal for them. The remaining portion of the event will consist of organized group networking sessions where each table of students will have one speaker to ask any questions they may have.

We understand that entering a case competition maybe a new experience for many students and so this valuable training session is for students to feel as ready as they can be.

Prior to the session, delegates that have signed up will receive a delegate package consisting of last year’s case from the internal case competition and a PowerPoint outlining important strategies on how to approach a case. Students will be expected to use these strategies to help them come up with a solution for the case and bring the solution on the day of the training session. At the training session, delegates will present their solution to all the students that are present and Dr. Allen Goss. Students will be able to listen to the different approaches taken by other students as well as receive helpful feedback and suggestions from Dr. Allen Goss. This training session is to help students to understand their areas of improvement and have a heightened level of confidence as they head towards the big day.

Location: Student Learning Centre

This is the 3rd annual Internal Case Competition hosted by RUFS. The competition this year will be open to all 1st and 2nd year students at Ryerson.

The purpose of this junior case competition is to provide students the opportunity to learn about what it takes to be successful in a case competition at the beginning of their University career. By having such a rare chance to practice case skills so early in their undergraduate studies, students will be ahead of the curve with regard to knowing their strengths and areas of improvement for solving and presenting cases. Therefore, we view this as a way students can develop their skills and grow in confidence for when they go onto future case competitions. The prizes for this particular competition consist of a tablet for the best presenter and a job shadowing opportunity for the 1st place winners.
