This January, a team composed of four undergraduate students in Accounting and Financial Management, Engineering, and Planning competed in the eighth edition of the annual Ryerson Real Estate Expand Your Empire (EYE) Case Competition, where their financially feasible and sustainable design won both the first place grand prize and the Most Feasible Design award for a total cash prize of $11,500.

Hey School of Accounting and Finance (SAF)!

We are Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) students Janvi, Hufsah, Nicole, and Rohun and we are happy to announce that we emerged with a first-place victory in the accounting portion of the Eclipse Case Competition that took place earlier in February!

AFM and SFM sound similar, right? They share more similarities than students realize. However, the key differences between the two programs distinctly separate them as unique educational pathways. As an incoming student, all the information available may appear overwhelming to the point where you may question what exactly the distinctions between the programs are. I’ll give a quick rundown of the similarities and differences between AFM and SFM, and provide some insight into the programs that may be of interest to them.

Making the most out of your electives

As my journey in Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) comes to an end, I have been reflecting on all the elective courses that have helped shape my experience. Early on, I approached elective classes with caution, seeking out courses that wouldn’t threaten my cumulative average. However, this was the wrong approach since electives are designed to help students discover their interests and compliment their exploration of accounting and finance.

Equipping students to become investment banking savvy

What started as a small initiative ten years ago has become a competitive student group with an established reputation. This year, the Student Investment Fund (SIF) reaches its 10th year anniversary and two of its faculty mentors, Ranjini Jha and Andrew Ecclestone, reflect on its growth through the past decade.
