PRISM offers value in so many ways that a student can use. In addition to the critical role of “emergency services” (ie temporarily replacing a broken computer) the courses on business-critical tools such as excel and getting Bloomberg training at such low prices is something that students won’t find anywhere else. I have discovered that the students that know how to use tech tools most effectively and efficiently have gone through PRISM training.
Having previously worked in recruitment, I have seen how valuable software skills are to employers. The tools Prism provides to its members allow them to find their passion and become leaders of tomorrow.
"As an employee and a customer, PRISM has always been there for me! The training courses have been HUGE in my personal/career based learning, and I can't count the amount of times they've saved me when I've needed a charger/laptop on campus!"
Technical courses like BU275 (Business Decision Models) expect you to be proficient in Excel when you show up; there is little time given in class to learn the basics. Prism’s Excel Courses will give you the foundation you need to support your groupmates and succeed in the course.
I continue to be incredibly impressed with all of the services PRISM offers to business and economics students at the Lazaridis School. This is an organization run by students for students which means the services (such as equipment rentals) and training courses (such as Bloomberg and Nielsen) are tailored specifically to the evolving needs of students, giving them an edge in the increasingly competitive job market. There is nothing like this at any other university in Canada!
PRISM is a student managed non-profit organization that offers computer hardware rentals and training in niche data driven skills such as Bloomberg (Finance), Nielsen ( Marketing), Audit and QuickBooks ( Accounting), and Stata, R, Python, Visual Basic, Advanced Excel- VBA , Microsoft Office, SQL and web design (computing). All the PRISM services are offered for a value price that is at a fractional cost compared to the costs outside. I therefore strongly endorse the PRISM membership for its high quality services being offered at a value price by a team of extremely dedicated and bright students with utmost professionalism
