Humber Students Collaborating with Small Business Owners
At Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, Ontario’s small and medium sized enterprises have access to student skills, faculty expertise, and lab facilities to support the development and implementation of e-business and technology solutions that drive innovation.
Through the Voucher for E-Business program, Humber students and faculty will work directly with companies on projects that include e-business solutions and social media strategies. Students will develop information websites, set-up social media platforms based on the business needs, and provide companies with user manuals and one-on-one training sessions on how to maintain and update their websites.
Through the program, students will gain industrial experience that relates directly to their fields of study and will develop essential soft skills as they engage partners and work in multidisciplinary teams. Company partners will work with these skilled, motivated students to solve their business and innovation challenges using Humber’s facilities. The program will contribute to the training of highly qualified personnel and will result in new market opportunities and exposure for Ontario businesses.
I was highly impressed by the VEB team led by Hanadi Alnawab. Each member of the project team that designed my website did a superior job. Irina’s web design, coding skills and recommendations were top notch. Spencer has a very creative and skillful ability both with video and photography as well as overall input into the site. And Pedro came up with such bright, eye catching logos that it was difficult to choose just one. Overall the team is extremely gifted and the contributors far surpassed my expectations. Their promptness, responsiveness and patience were exemplary. Under Hanadi’s leadership they delivered superior results. Thank you team!Nadine Galszechy, Career Path Coaching
