Western has been invited once again to participate in the CEO for a Day (CEO x 1 Day)program offered through Odgers Berndtson.
It is a program that gives third and fourth year university students an opportunity to spend a day in the shoes of a senior executive. Last year Western Students, Kaiz Alarakyia, from our Chemical Engineering and Business progam and Michael Delplavignano, from our HBA program were selected to participate in CEO for a Day.
Through a rigorous selection process, Odgers Berndtson will identify students with outstanding leadership potential and match them with a CEO from a leading Canadian organization. After a successful launch in Toronto and Montreal in 2013, this year the program will be expanded to include the Vancouver and Calgary markets with more than 20 CEOs participating across the country.
Online registration will open on October 1st and run until November 7th. Winners will be announced by January 2015 and matched with CEOs the next month (February 2015). Up to 20 students will be selected and matched with a local CEO for a day (in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal or Calgary).
