"Since 2019, the TTC has employed 35 of our students across several key disciplines—including accounting, finance, operations, and IT, to name a few—while building a strong campus recruitment brand through networking events and mentorship, both in person and virtually," said Sischa Maharaj, Assistant Director of External Relations and Communications with the Department of Management.

"The TTC truly believes that investing in students, developing their skills, and providing them with opportunities to succeed is key to the organization's success.
