in Accounting

Barbra Spetz

Currently, I am attending the University of Regina in the Bachelor of Business Administration program. Once I have completed the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, I plan to enter the workforce and pursue Chartered Accountancy. I want to use my training to impact the lives of others. I have had many opportunities to use my leadership abilities and to volunteer not only within the community, but also further afield. From baking pies at Thanksgiving to supporting a sponsor child in Indonesia, to building a church and distributing clothes/food hampers in San Carlos, Mexico, to helping clean up after the flood in Minot, North Dakota, all these activities remind me of all I have to be thankful for and encourage me to be involved and to make a difference when possible. As Albert Einstein once said, “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” That is my goal.

Once completing a Business Administration degree at the Paul J. Hill School of Business, I plan to pursue a Chartered Professional Accountant designation. With the tools I gain from my education, I hope to become a well-rounded business professional. My aim is to travel the world and gain invaluable experience in a variety of industries, environments and economies. I intend to stay active in my community and encourage others to do so. With the experience I acquire, I wish to be influential in the development and application of public policies that increase the quality of life within society.

Brayden Willenborg
Majoring in Software Systems Engineering and minor in Electronic Systems Engineering



I find the most enjoyment in taking everyday business processes, especially ones that are often laborious and time consuming, and using software and electronics to automate these processes to save precious time and money. This area is known as enterprise application software engineering and is one of the most sought-after fields for software engineers today. I enjoy this area of work because it requires a strong technical understanding of software engineering and information systems, plus a general understanding of how organizations operate along with the people within them. Enterprise application software is a rapidly expanding market and one that I hope to be a part of.
