School of Business


The UFV School of Business fully supports the research conducted by faculty and students. To create opportunities to foster and encourage research, the UFV School of Business has begun a series of research-focused initiatives.

Some of these initiatives include, but are not limited to:

Research development program

The School of Business invites faculty throughout the University to participate in a variety of workshops and seminars, with topics ranging from “Identifying your research area” to “Publishing in ‘good’ journals'”.

The Research Development Program at the UFV School of Business was established to support us in achieving our strategic goal to "engage in research and scholarly activities that will drive excellence in all of our work." The program is designed to help both early career faculty and those who would like to freshen up on their existing knowledge and skills.

Although offered by the UFV School of Business, all seminars and workshops in our Research Development Program are open to all post-graduate students and faculty at UFV.

Pursuing an undergraduate degree at UFV is extremely unique, as students have the amazing opportunity to conduct research with their instructors. I was priviledged enough to work with Dr. Frank Ulbrich, and not only did I present my research at the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada Conference in Halifax in 2015, but I became a published academic author by the end of my degree. If you are passionate enough about something, or are willing to reveal your strengths and ideas to your professors here at UFV, the likelihood of an academic partnership occurring is quite high.
