• Graduate Ambassador Program

    Bridging the GAP to Schulich's Student Experience.

    The Graduate Ambassador Program (or “GAP”) is an exclusive opportunity for Schulich graduate students to gain new connections and build your leadership and communication skills – all while sharing your experience with prospective and admitted students!

    Ambassadors have the opportunity to connect one-on-one with prospective students, organize class visits and building tours, as well as engage with the next generation of Schulich at admissions and networking events. There is no strict time-commitment for this program, but we look for highly motivated students seeking to actively engage with the program and grow outside of the classroom.

    Does this sound like you? Then apply to the program below!

    If at any point you have questions or concerns, you can always contact events@schulich.yorku.ca.

Experience Schulich

Experience Schulich is our marquee Open House event which takes place twice a year and plays a critical role in drawing new talent to the student mix.

This day-long event usually draws between 150-300 prospective candidates, who get to take part in networking sessions with current students and Professors, experience sample master-classes, speak with various departments at Schulich (eg., CDC, Financial Aid) and listen to Alumni talk about their experiences.

Given the scale of this event, Graduate Ambassadors are essential to keep the various sessions running smoothly, as well as for representing Schulich at networking events. Your insights about Schulich’s program and the student experience can have a strong impact on candidates trying to gauge their fit at Schulich. As a result, many candidates are also more likely to apply to and accept their Offer of Admission from Schulich after attending this event.

Experience Schulich Dates:

Fall Semester: TDB

Winter Semester: TDB

If you are interested in taking part in this event, please email events@schulich.yorku.ca. An email will also be sent to all active graduate ambassadors.

MBA Fairs

QS Connect, Access MBA and World MBA Tour are some of the fairs that travel internationally and very often, Schulich travels with them! Our recruiters have voyaged through Latin America, Asia and Europe to recruit exceptional candidates for Schulich. When these tours have a stop in Toronto, having current students help represent Schulich at its booth provides a strong advantage.

These tours allows candidates to meet with and assess multiple Business schools at the same time. Therefore, giving prospective students the admissions insight along with the opportunity to talk to a current student makes a big difference.

You can find a list of all MBA Fairs Schulich will be attending under the “Graduate Admissions Events” Quick Link.
