As the tagline suggests, education with purpose, DeGroote has always exceeded my expectations and its big alumni network is amazing.
Its Co-op MBA and its experiential learning model align with its goal of education with purpose.
Why an MBA?
During my work experience, I was involved in interacting with my functional counterparts to understand the business requirements and capture them in the form of technical solution thereby enabling us to deliver quality software for our clients. Such experiences have ensured a phenomenal learning-curve and inculcated pertinent skills and in-depth knowledge in functional and technical operations of business requirements.
Continuing on the same lines, I see myself as a Product/Brand Manager at a technology firm where I look forward to ‘owning’ my product – setting strategies and defining the product road map. To achieve this effectively, I needed a deeper understanding of market and consumer behavior, and learn to coordinate with cross-functional teams for product integration. This was one of the main motivation to join MBA

What has been the highlight of your DeGroote experience so far?
