A Sustainable Career
~Michael Savarie grew up in Cranbrook and was always interested in attending College of the Rockies. The location, cost and smaller class sizes helped to cement his decision to choose the College to begin his education. ~
He first intended to major in Biology but after his first year, he realized he was more interested in the business field. After discussing his options with a variety of College instructors, he changed his focus to major in Marketing.
He completed his Marketing diploma and then moved on to the Bachelor of Communications program at Thompson Rivers University. After completing his first semester, he realized the College’s Bachelor of Business Administration: Sustainable Business Practices (BBA) was a better fit for him, so he returned home to College of the Rockies.
Since graduating from the BBA program, Michael set off on a new adventure – living and working in England. He began in a business to business marketing role with a start-up company and as a recruiter in the technology field. He quickly realized a desk was not the place for him and has now moved to the South of France where he is working as a project manager for the restoration of heritage buildings.
Due to his increasing interest in sustainability, Michael is also currently pursuing his Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation. He looks forward to applying his LEED knowledge as well as what he learned at College of the Rockies to his work in France.
