Ambrose Business wants you! We have two great opportunities available to all Ambrose students.
Travel study to Africa – Do you want to go to Rwanda & Uganda and learn more about culture, community development and using business to advance communities? DVST 404 – Economic Development Travel Study to Africa takes place in May 2017 and is open to all Ambrose students with some experience or course(s) in culture, international development or global issues generally. Let Angie Redecopp (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested. This will cost about $3,000/student for the travel & trip costs but there are fundraising options. An organizing meeting will take place in early January so talk to parents, loved ones etc. to see if they will help support you on such a trip (it would be a great Christmas present and they can get a charitable receipt) or consider some extra hours at work!
Calling all entrepreneurs – Ambrose is looking at pairing up with MRU and U of C for a post-secondary ATB BoostR event. ATB BoostR (www.albertaboostr.ca) is a local crowdfunding platform for Alberta entrepreneurs who want to test or start their own business/social non-profit. Peter Fenwick (business sessional) is offering BUS 392 Business Planning in the winter term for enterprising students interested in taking their business/social idea to the next step. Students in BUS 392 will be supported as they participate in the ATB BoostR event. Let Peter (email@example.com) know if you are interested in the class (he would consider waiving the BUS 390 pre-req if you have some experience) and/or the ATB BoostR event.
In anticipation of final exam season the Accessibility and Support Services Office is offering a FREE workshop for students to learn strategies and skills to succeed in test taking. No pre-registration necessary! This 50 minute workshop will take place on:
Thursday, December 1 from 2:30pm – 3:30pm - Boardroom, L2040
Wednesday, December 7 from 11:15am – 12:05pm – Room A2133
My name is Rebecca Kuhn. I am currently conducting a study on the experiences of pastor’s kids. In this study I explore how the experience of being a pastor’s kid can impact a person’s relationships with God, their family, their friends, and the Church, and how they perceive and have perceived these institutions and relationships throughout their lives.
I am looking for ten participants who are eighteen years and older and have a parent that is either an executive pastor or a youth pastor, who would consider participating in an hour long (approximately) interview. Questions will range from general information about yourself to more pointed questions about how being a pastor’s kid has impacted different areas of your life.
This research is important in helping other pastor’s kids navigate their own journeys, and equipping pastors and congregants to better understand the lives of pastor’s kids. As well, this is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the literature on pastor’s families in a way that has not been done before.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ambrose University in the continuing Faith, Life & Learning series is focusing this fall on Work with Dr. Gordon Smith speaking in chapel on God’s Call to Work and an evening workshop on a new way of defining work called Purposeful Portfolio Careers.
Faith, Life & Learning: Work - Nov 1st
Students, Alumni, Faculty, Staff and Community are all invited
Purposeful Portfolio Careers: Think outside the box to redefine your work life.
The global economy, advancing technology and access to global talent has changed the playing field for North Americans looking for work. A portfolio careerist is someone who feels more secure generating income from a variety of sources rather than relying on one full-time job. Portfolio careers will become the new way to thrive in our new world of work.
