The Schulich Experience Goes Beyond the Classroom
Students entering the BBA and iBBA programs are exposed to a variety of experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, to assist with a successful transition to Schulich and York University.
The true Schulich student experience is characterized by diversity. As such, our undergrads are encouraged to take risks, get involved in a broad range of extra-curricular activities, attend events, and form lasting relationships with their peers from across the globe.

First Year Experience
From the LEAF Mentorship Program to student clubs, tutoring services, and Learning Skills Workshops, there are a wide variety of resources on campus to meet students’ needs.
New students are assigned a dedicated personal Academic Advisor in the Undergraduate Programs Unit to help guide them through their post-secondary journey. In addition to 1-1 academic advising appointments, mandatory advising is held in the Fall and Winter to ensure students understand expectations and how to succeed in the program.
With various events specifically designed for first year students, there’s never a dull moment.
Schulich Ambassador Program
The Schulich Ambassador Program provides students with opportunities to develop their soft skills to support their academics. Coordinated by the Undergraduate Programs Unit, the goal is to give Schulich students the chance to develop into charismatic leaders who are passionate citizens, excellent communicators, and outstanding role models. Ambassadors are at the heart of the student body and accumulate points for their contributions, receiving recognition and awards for outstanding student involvement.
Develop your presentation, communication, teamwork and leadership skills. For more information about the Schulich Ambassador Program, contact the Student Engagement Coordinator at email@example.com or 416-736-5081.
Current Schulich Ambassadors can submit their community involvement by logging in to their Ambassador Activity Log.
“This program has given me opportunities to develop important soft skills and understand the value of cohesive teamwork. If you want to go fast, travel alone, but if you want to go far, travel together.”
– Michael Dizon, 2016 BBA
Undergraduate Business Society (UBS)
The Undergraduate Business Society is the Schulich student government and acts as the voice for the undergraduate student community. The UBS provides a variety of services for students to maximize their Schulich experience, including overseeing Schulich’s student clubs, hosting O-Week, and inviting students to a range of social events that allow you to mix business with pleasure.

“Calling this school home for the last few years has been one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Schulich is a community where diversity and inclusion for all people is not only the established norm, but one that flourishes through all individuals within the student body.”
– Carolina Pimentel Lucas, UBS President
BBA Case Competition Preparation Program
To support undergrads who want to compete in case competitions, or simply learn more about how to approach cases, Schulich has introduced the BBA Case Competition Preparation Program (BBA-CCPP). The purpose of this program is to help you learn how to structure your case competition submission(s) and how to present the material effectively.
A limited amount of funding will also be made available for specific competitions. All students, including those competing in the JDCC, who wish to receive funding will be required to participate fully in the program. All teams and individuals who qualify for funding, will also receive individual coaching from the program director.
Students who elect to not participate in the formal program, but choose to compete, will still have an opportunity to get additional coaching – by appointment – on Fridays between 12:30 and 2:00 pm. simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. Please note that this is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Schulich students have the best of both worlds. In addition to exclusive events just for the Schulich community, students have access to a wide array of services and activities at York University. Run for student government, participate in special events and develop your leadership skills – all while tracking your club involvement with an official co-curricular transcript through YU Connect.
