Time to look ahead!

With the holiday break behind us and a new semester well underway, this is a great time to pause and look ahead. 

Every January leads to a refreshed check-list, new resolutions and personal goals. For some, this semester may be a time to focus on being a more engaged Mount student or community member. For others, including graduates, securing employment for the summer and after convocation is top of mind. 

So what are you planning to accomplish this semester? Whatever the goal – the faculty and staff in the Business and Tourism department want to see you succeed, so what would we recommend? 

  1. One Hour – Spend one hour to decide what you want to do this semester. Map out your goals by starting with your class schedule. Identify times where you can focus on the things you want to do both inside and outside of class. 
  2. ‘Save the Date’ for activities and events that you want to get involved with. We’re planning a number of events you’ll want to be part of: Caritas Day event on January 25; Social Enterprise for a Day on Feb 3-4 and Career Week from March 5th to 9th  are just three examples.
  3. Stay on Track – Do this by touching base with key people in your areas of focus such as your academic advisor, mentor or faculty member.

This semester will fly by fast, so it’s important that you take a little time now to avoid the crunch time when things get hectic. Stay tuned to the Business and Tourism department here, through Twitter (@MSVU_Business and @MSVU_Tourism) and Facebook (Mount Busi Tourism). Of course, you can always just drop by our office if you have questions or want to chat! 

We wish you the best of luck this semester, and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!

Dr. Peter Mombourquette
Chair of the Department of Business and Tourism
