Words from our partners

"As a New Brunswick based company, we like to support UNB and its students in their educational pursuits. After identifying some management and logistical challenges, we partnered with UNB’s Faculty of Management students to find solutions. 

The students were keen and attentive. They impressed our management team with their research efforts and their grasp of the issues our company was facing. Their presentations were thorough and provided our team with concrete avenues to pursue.

We would highly recommend that other companies engage with the Faculty of Management. The collaboration process was seamless, and they made a special effort to ensure that planning and coordination was well organized. 

We look forward to working on additional projects in future.”

"The information and the time saved using the faculty and its students to assist NBACL has been extremely beneficial to our association. It has been refreshing to hear the new ideas, approaches, and feedback from the students, which in turn were used to help NBACL grow. It’s impressive to see the students use what they are taught in a hands-on environment with real life impact."

“The Business Planning & Entrepreneurship course at UNB is a unique opportunity for first year students to get real-world entrepreneurial experience using industry leading methodology. As a non-profit focused on supporting the development of globally competitive entrepreneurs and startups, Planet Hatch is pleased to mentor the next generation of business leaders and innovators for our region through this course.”

“I was thrilled to be invited by UNB’s Faculty of Management to participate as a mentor in the Business Planning & Entrepreneurship course.  As an active member of the business community and as a proud alumni of UNB’s MBA Program, I am pleased to mentor the next generation of business leaders.  I attribute much of my success to the skills that I developed and the relationships that I built as a student at UNB.  I can honestly say that the quality of the students’ deliverables is a true testament to the quality of the Programs and Professors at UNB.”
