BComm students attend Deloitte event

A group of students from our BComm degrees attended an event at Deloitte on Friday Nov 29 and shared that it was an evening to remember!

The event “Todays’ Students, Tomorrow’s Leaders”, is a career preparation workshop presented by Deloitte. During the event, our students had the chance to connect with peers and Deloitte practitioners to:

  • Discuss Personal branding
  • Learn about The skills needed for the future of work
  • Discover how to establish connections effectively
  • Debate Topics such as leadership, service excellence
  • Network with leaders and hiring managers

The students shared that the session started with an introduction to Deloitte and what they do, followed by a very motivational and inspirational presentation on what leadership is and what good leaders do. The topic of “Thought Leadership – What it Takes to Succeed in Today’s Industry” was introduced through a very interactive discussion panel.

During dinner, participants were able to network with each other and the members of Deloitte.

“What resonated throughout the event is that leadership is not about hierarchy, it is about having grit, empathy, building relationships, and taking initiatives.”

 Workshop Content: Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016 Part 2 (Intermediate) 

Overview: 

Whether you need to crunch numbers for sales, inventory, information technology, human resources, or other organizational purposes and departments, the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time can create a powerful competitive advantage. After all, the world runs on data more than ever before and that’s a trend not likely to change, or even slow down, any time soon. But with so much data available and being created on a nearly constant basis, the ability to make sense of that data becomes more critical and challenging with every passing day. You already know how to get Excel to perform simple calculations and how to modify your workbooks and worksheets to make them easier to read, interpret, and present to others. But, Excel is capable of doing so much more. To gain a truly competitive edge, you need to be able to extract actionable organizational intelligence from your raw data. In other words, when you have questions about your data, you need to know how to get Excel to provide the answers for you. And that’s exactly what this course aims to help you do.

This course builds upon the foundational knowledge presented in the Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 1 (Second Edition) course and will help start you down the road to creating advanced workbooks and worksheets that can help deepen your understanding of organizational intelligence. The ability to analyze massive amounts of data, extract actionable information from it, and present that information to decision makers is at the foundation of a successful organization that is able to compete at a high level.

This course covers Microsoft Office Specialist exam objectives to help students prepare for the Excel 2016 Exam and the Excel 2016 Expert Exam.

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to leverage the power of data analysis and presentation in order to make informed, intelligent organizational decisions.

You will:

  • Customize the Excel environment.
  • Create advanced formulas.
  • Analyze data by using functions and conditional formatting.
  • Organize and analyze datasets and tables.
  • Visualize data by using basic charts.
  • Analyze data by using PivotTables, slicers, and PivotCharts.

Target Student: 

This course is designed for students who already have foundational knowledge and skills in Excel 2016 and who wish to begin taking advantage of some of the higher-level functionality in Excel to analyze and present data.
