What is Momentum Connections?
Momentum Connections is a biweekly program where 2nd and 3rd year in-program students have an opportunity to discuss the challenges they face and successes they have had throughout their journey in the Commerce or Management program.
You are placed into groups of 7-8 based on your program and interests. Each session is facilitated by a 4th-year Commerce or Management student who also discusses a variety of techniques that you can utilize in your day-to-day academic journey.
