Sobey School of Business IMPACT Fund

Stephanie Fitzner

How can investing in students pay dividends? Here is how.

A university education is an investment in every student’s future. And for Stephanie Fitzner, that’s quite literally the case. A 4th year Bachelor of Commerce student and Strategy and Operations Consultant at Deloitte, you could say that Stephanie’s common sense is her business sense—something her time at Saint Mary’s has helped her hone.

Still in the process of completing her degree, Stephanie has had the chance to manage real money through the Sobey School of Business IMPACT Fund, a prestigious student-run investment portfolio worth half a million dollars.

“Participating in the IMPACT Fund was huge for me. Without that opportunity, I’m not sure my co-op experience at Scotiabank in Toronto would have been possible.” 

After two eye-opening Bay Street work placements with Scotiabank, Stephanie finds herself more than ready for her next academic challenge.

“After my degree, I’d like to pursue my CFA designation. Because being entrepreneurial and successful in such a globalized economy is essential—something my time at SMU has taught me over and over again”.
