The MBA program at DeGroote School of Business prepares students for real-world success. After doing thorough research before applying at DeGroote, I learned that the program has been continuously evolving based on employer requirements. Additionally, the CPD team partners with distinguished companies to enable students secure meaningful internships and full-time job opportunities. I’m so glad I chose to pursue my MBA at DeGroote!
Why an MBA?
I did my undergrad in Visual Communication Design, and after working for five years, I realized I needed to learn the tried and tested method of doing business. DeGroote has assisted me in closing that knowledge gap while providing me with tools to help me grow as a leader and gain more confidence in my strategic management abilities.
What surprised you about DeGroote?
DeGroote is all about the student experience. The way the program pivoted from all virtual to hybrid to fully in-person was very smooth. What amazed me the most was that 91% of our batch was able to secure summer internships, regardless of a tough job market.
