What are Bootcamps?
The Business Career Hub at the Ted Rogers School of Management provides students with opportunities to continuously upgrade and enhance their technical skills through industry and facilitator-led bootcamps. Attending these bootcamps provide students with fast access to industry-relevant training to bridge the gap between curriculum and market needs.

The bootcamps that are offered by the Business Career Hub are incredibly valuable as it helps students develop a wide range of technical skills that are not learned in the classroom.
As a Marketing student, it is very rare to be taught how to use excel at an advanced level. Therefore, after completing the Excel Bootcamp, I have learned how to use the different functionalities including v-lookups and creating pivot tables. The Excel Bootcamps has given me extra confidence during my interviews and co-op placements because I was able to demonstrate my knowledge in one of the most popular tools in any business operations as well as maximize efficiency for my tasks.
Business Analyst at Slalom Consulting
The Business Career Hub’s Bootcamps has had a huge impact on my career. I highly commend the hands-on experience that I received in Excel, Tableau, Python, R, Consulting Prep, and most notably the Salesforce Bootcamp.
The Consulting Prep Bootcamp reaffirmed my desire to pursue a career in consulting, and further motivated me to explore new interests and skills outside my field of study, which helped me to stand out among other candidates.
During my Bootcamp hopping, I stumbled upon an industry-led Salesforce Bootcamp by Slalom Consulting, where I had the opportunity to network and obtain an interview. Working at Slalom has been an incredibly rewarding, challenging, and inspiring experience. I have since felt honoured to facilitate the Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 Slalom Salesforce Bootcamps, where I was able to give students the same opportunities that I once received.
My advice to you: stay humble and be curious!

First Year Testimonials
Attended VBA and Communicating with Confidence
As a first year TRSM Business Management student, I am always looking for ways to gain valuable skills to make me business ready. The Bootcamps offered by the Business Career Hub (BCH) are perfect for me. They offer sessions that teach various computer programming software and soft skills that employers are looking for. So far, I have participated in “Visual Basic for Applications” (VBA) where I learned how to develop programs within Excel.
The Communicating with Confidence Bootcamp provided me with both visual and verbal presentation strategies for effective communication. I will continue to register in more Bootcamps such as Excel, Python, and Tableau to name a few. I believe that the skills I gain from participating in these classes will prepare me well as I embark on my business career.
Attended Communicating with Confidence
Going into my first Bootcamp at TRSM, I wasn't sure what to expect from it. I wasn't sure if I should even be taking a Bootcamp this early in my first year. All these thoughts subsided during the first few minutes of the session.
This particular Bootcamp focused on communication via different mediums such as PowerPoint and in-person interactions. We were taught how to read our target audience and structure our means of communication accordingly. The ability to communicate effectively is very important regardless of your occupation. This Bootcamp has allowed me to improve my communication skills significantly, all in a span of less than 3 hours!
After completing the Bootcamp, I was beyond happy that I didn't let my doubts get in the way and registered for it within the first week of my first year of university!

Attended Excel and R
As a first year BTM student, I believe the Excel Bootcamp has helped me better prepare for my classes and assignments. I learned quite a few different skills which made it easier for me to do the Excel lab assignments.
Moreover, I also learned a little bit of R programming that enhanced my technical skills. The Bootcamps themselves were delivered and designed in such a manner that was concise yet extremely informative and thorough. I learned a lot in just a few hours which was really great. Looking forward to attending more Bootcamps this semester!
