CHARTERED PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTANT (CPA) | CERTIFIED TRAINING OFFICE
In 2013, Harvard became a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Certified Training Office and has since had a mentorship program available to employees enrolled in the CPA Designation Program. We offer employees who are interested in pursuing their professional accounting designation the benefit of working in a CPA Training Office, which affords them the advantage of a close mentor in the form of a colleague.
CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM
Harvard has been a long-time supporter of the Co-Operative Education program through the Paul J. Hill School of Business at the University of Regina. This program takes undergraduate business students and offers them a 4-8 month term of employment with a respected business in place of their regular course work. The Co-Op program allows for students to supplement their standard course work with a term of experiential learning, as it relates to their specific field of business studies. Harvard has consistently supported this program for over a decade.
