DeGroote has helped me in redefining myself in my personal as well as professional arenas by giving me immense opportunities to learn through phenomenal client projects, case competitions and empirical growth possibilities.

Why DeGroote?

I resonated with DeGroote’s mission of “Education with Purpose”. DeGroote has helped me in personal exploration and has provided my purpose to support the community and discover my passion for analytics. The collaborative and thoughtful culture at DeGroote has always captivated me and further encouraged to help others. It was extremely surprising when my seniors went out of their way to guide and comfort me even before I planned to join DeGroote. MBA is a degree is bound to be stressful but with the exceptionally nurturing and growth-oriented atmosphere at DeGroote, MBA would feel like a breeze.

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

The people in the program have made my journey so much better and definitely that’s a highlight for me. I got the opportunity to work with extremely talented people in Semester One. Even though my Learning Group(shoutout to LG4) had people in three different countries(three different timezones) and thanks to the pandemic- we started our MBA online, we learnt from each other’s skills and our collaboration produced great results. I grew on a professional as well as a personal level working with my fantastic peers.

Although away from my family , I have made friends at DeGroote who are just like my family.
