Preparing for the Canadian Work Environment: A Graduate’s Journey

Daniela Garcia Ruesga graduated from the Bachelor of Business Administration program in 2022 with outstanding achievements. Her diligence, motivation, and eagerness to learn set her apart from her peers, and she was a strong leader in the Marketing Club, showcasing her diverse talents and interests.

Gaining Diverse Perspectives and Ways of Working

Throughout her time at Acsenda School of Management, Daniela enhanced her speaking skills by joining the English Conversation Circle, which gave her the opportunity to put into practice the theories she learned in class. She had the opportunity to put into practice the theory learned and applied it twice for the ASQ Vancouver annual virtual conference in 2020 and 2021 while learning how to reach audiences on social platforms organically. She also collaborated with 28 students from Acsenda & Athena School of Management in generating international business strategies for an entrepreneur and product evaluation case study.

After taking the Project Management course, Daniela pursued two industry-backed certifications in agile product development, the Scrum Foundation & Scum Master Scrum Product Owner, which helped her get familiar with the agile framework and learn how to lead a scrum team. This experience taught her the importance of team collaboration to provide incremental value.

Daniela enjoyed attending classes with instructors and classmates from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, which gave her different perspectives on working and communicating. She looks forward to applying her knowledge and experience to the Canadian work environment.
