Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops, jointly with the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) in Langley, was awarded a Speaker Series Grant of $5,000 by the CPA Education Foundation (CPAEF) to support faculty development.

The grant will enable these universities to host a workshop on the “IVEY Case Methodology” by Dr. Fraser Johnson of the IVEY School of Business and is expected to be held at UFV Langley campus in Spring 2018.

This workshop intends to provide faculty from both institutions with a proven method of using cases to analyze typical business issues that managers face on a day to day basis.  Participants can then develop cases which encourage their students to engage local businesses, learn about real world issues and then to present practical business solutions which can be implemented in the real world.

The CPAEF Speaker Series program is open to all B.C. post secondary institutions and provides grants of up to $2,500 up to twice a year to support faculty development   The grant application can be found on the CPAEF website under “Supporting Faculty.”   Applications are accepted throughout the year.
