The highlight of my DeGroote experience has been meeting so many high achieving and passionate students, lecturers, and industry leaders over the course of a few months. I feel inspired and excited by all the people I've met.
I had such a wonderful experience attending McMaster University for my undergraduate degree and wanted to continue my graduate studies at an institution that promotes excellence. DeGroote is widely known for its co-op program that blends traditional learning with on the job work experience, and as someone who wanted to career pivot, I knew DeGroote was the perfect fit for me.
Why an MBA?
As a STEM graduate, I have discovered through my work experiences that I am lacking the business acumen that would allow me to progress my career to the next level. An MBA will help me further develop my understanding of several parts of the business not limited to: finance, analytics, marketing, and operations, which will help future-me make highly impactful strategic decisions.
