Campus bookstore project gives SFU students hands-on experience

January 11, 2016

A project with the campus bookstore has allowed undergraduate students at Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business to learn about collaboration in a diverse work environment. The students work in groups of 15 to manage the marketing and promotion, product management, and accounting and operations for one Beedie product at the bookstore, all while working under a $150 budget. Andrew Gemino, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs at Beedie, states that students “had to work together, iron out their differences and come up with one presentation for [the group of] 15 people.” Globe and Mail
