Kwantlen boasts high percentages

A recent survey of Kwantlen Polytechnic University graduates shows that 87 per cent of students found work within four months of graduation, and of that number, 44 per cent found employment within a month of graduation, including some who were recruited even before completing their studies.

Part of the continued success comes from the real world applicability of Kwantlen’s courses and a rigorous commitment to teaching analytical and strategic thinking along with the practical day-to-day skills needed to execute projects. Added to this mix is an engaged co-op program designed to both help students sell themselves on paper and to connect them directly with employers looking to hire in the business world. It’s all part and parcel of a real-world education, which connects the industry leaders with grads who understand their needs and have the skills to get the job done.

“I chose Kwantlen because I wanted a school that combines classroom learning with hands-on experience,” says Janna Rudetsky, a graduate of Kwantlen’s Bachelor of Business Administration, Accounting.

“Through my Co-op experience I learned employable skills and got great career support from my instructors, which was instrumental in landing my first real job.”

Rudetsky is currently employed in the Property Tax and Utility Department at the City of Surrey.
