Why DeGroote?

DeGroote’s focus on experiential learning, most specifically highlighted by its co-op program, made it the best choice for me as an international student. The school perfectly integrated theory and real-world practice, allowing for a truly meaningful and unique academic experience. Aside from professional advancement, there is also an emphasis on personal growth and development that immensely helped me in multiple aspects of my life – from simply interacting with my peers, shifting to another industry, and solidifying my personal and professional goals.
