How does someone from Kingston, Ontario end up at a small college in BC? For Eden Yesh, it was the combination of a volleyball scholarship and an opportunity to live in the beautiful Kootenays.
“I really enjoyed the smaller classes, great teachers, and practical experiences as a student at the College,” he said.
Over the years, Eden’s education and career trajectory resulted in him focusing on sustainability, community development, and climate action. He completed a Professional Certificate in Community Economic Development before entering the world of entrepreneurship.
“It’s a boutique post-secondary institution, nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, with lots of fresh air, good people, and great teachers.”
College of the Rockies now offers a Bachelor of Business Administration in Sustainable Business Practices which provides students like Eden a more direct path to career choices focused on sustainability.
