Meet Mavis Teye, a student currently completing a DVS (Diploma Vocational Studies) in Accounting at the NOVA Career Centre. Not only does Mavis juggle a family which includes 2 and 5-year-old boys, she is concurrently completing a graduate diploma in Accounting at McGill University! Mavis has chosen to simultaneously complete a DVS and a graduate diploma at university because she feels that employers’ seek real-world, hands-on experience in accounting… the type of experience and training that is gained in a program at NOVA. Believe it or not, there is more! Mavis is no stranger to school… she has already earned a Master’s degree and has just published her Master’s thesis.

Way to go Mavis!
