MBA Alumni profile: Terry Teal 

Meet Terry Teal, Bachelor of Commerce Co-op – and customer service manager with TD Canada Trust

Says Terry: “I chose the Bachelor of Commerce Co-op program because it offered me the opportunity to gain practical work experience while attending university. I knew that obtaining a degree from such a reputable school as Dalhousie would benefit me when I began my career.

“My first job after graduation was with the Hudson's Bay Company as a manager trainee. I worked there for seven years in a management role. Last year, I made the decision to enter the financial services industry and have been working with TD Canada Trust as a manager of customer service here in Halifax. Soon after beginning work with the bank, I earned an award given to top employees. I have recently been accepted into the bank’s Certified Advisor Program and will be studying to obtain my mutual funds license so that I can open more doors within the organization.”
