Changing Lives: International Student Stories
Guneet Kaur Dikshit, Human Resource Management, Class of 2013
Recruitment Coordinator at Great-West Life
My experience as an international student has been incredibly stimulating, enriching and rewarding. Not only did the program have the best mix of courses, it also provided hands on practical knowledge. Thanks to the brilliant and highly experienced instructors from the field along with very supportive staff, I could excel and avail the opportunity to get a $2000.00 scholarship. The internship at the end of the program ended up with me getting hired at the same company. My class comprised of students from different professional and cultural backgrounds. It was a true representation of diversity and multicultural mosaic! All along it's been an amazing journey!

Attending PACE has proved invaluable to my career. PACE has given me the opportunity to give back what I have learnt. The academic mileage that I gained allowed an easy, smooth and rewarding transition to the Canadian workforce market. Besides providing academic excellence the PACE faculty also helped me in getting adjusted to this new country and helped me call it home. The competency and the professionalism of the faculty were nothings less than outstanding. All this gives me an increased sense of self-esteem and a feeling of great accomplishment.
Satender Singh, Project Management Diploma Class of 2014
Procurement Specialist - Strategic Sourcing, New Flyer Industries
Taking a break from work after 10 successful years in Strategic Sourcing and Supply Chain with Automobile Industry was not that easy. However with my profound aspiration to enrich my proficiencies I attended many education fairs and explored 100's of universities. While exploring and researching I came across the Project management course offered by PACE and ended up choosing it, which proved invaluable to my career.
Besides providing academic excellence the PACE faculty also helped me in getting adjusted to this new country and helped me call it home. Refreshing my memories when first time I landed Winnipeg airport, the PACE faculty member was there for my airport pickup.
The expertise and the professionalism of the faculty were stupendous. All this gives me a healthier sense of self-esteem and a feeling of great accomplishment.
My experience as an international student has been incredibly stimulating, enriching and rewarding. It realized my practical experience into powerful Canadian experience I was having two job offer at the end of my internship; Thanks to PACE !!!

Kritika Gulati, Public Relations, Marketing and Strategic Communications, Class of 2014
Brand Ambassador, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)
As an international student, PACE proved to be an excellent choice for building my education and life experience with an incredibly designed program. I got to meet students from around the world and learning became a way of connecting with your classmates through discussing and debating diverse ideas, and interacting with our experienced instructors. PACE gave me the unique opportunity to showcase my talents, improve my skills and most importantly, have fun while doing it. After the program finished, I graduated with my two greatest accomplishments, an opportunity to work as a corporate affairs intern at Cargill and a Brand Ambassador at CBC.
