Karen McMurray teaches for our Business Administration program mainly at our Terrace campus. She sees huge value when students are coached to grow outside the course content through simulations and challenges and reflection.

“Content is always interesting, and the students are brilliant, but I think that is where the real value is for everyone.”

Karen studied at BCIT, Thompson Rivers University, SFU and Royal Roads University. She holds a BComm with a specialization in Leadership and a Graduate Certificate in Project Management.

She encourages students to succeed through experimentation and the practice of improving. “I encourage my students to fail first in experiments and fail big and fast. Do that here where they are safe, and we can experiment and practice improving. Then our students can go out into their careers with confidence and experience.”

Her favourite place to explore our beautiful region is Haida Gwaii because it feels like home to her and she loves the culture of the islands (she lived there for many years).

“Sailing into Skidegate on the ferry gives me a feeling of coming home like nothing else ever has.”
