At RRU, who you are matters as much as what you’ve done. Admissions make evaluations based on more than just transcripts, welcoming students with extensive and practical learning in the workforce and life who may have been overlooked by other institutions.

Take this opportunity to connect with staff, students and alumni. Find out how our blended learning model—online with short on-campus residencies— enables you to get an education without having to put your life on hold.
This general information session covers a broad range of topics – please join us, and bring your questions with you. We’d like to show you how Royal Roads University is Life.Changing.

Following a brief overview of Royal Roads will be a dynamic presentation by Dr. Carolin Rekur Munro, Professor from the School of Business;

Emotional Intelligence: Cracking the Code for Career Success

Emotional intelligence (EI) is earmarked as the signature attribute that distinguishes star performers from others in the workplace and positions us for success in our careers. EI has been identified as more important than traditional cognitive skills when it comes to our effectiveness in developing and sustaining working relationships, problem solving and decision making. However, emotional intelligence can be somewhat elusive, leaving us with many questions about whether we have emotional intelligence and what courses of action we can take to build capacity in this area. In this interactive session, we explore how we can harness emotional intelligence for success no matter where we are in our career trajectory. We will examine the top behaviours we want to eliminate and discover new emotionally intelligent behaviours for acting and reacting to the world around us. You will leave the session with a toolkit of practices which you can apply immediately.
