I have been a Consultant at EY for 6 years before coming to DeGroote. After my extensive experience and the knowledge I had gained, I knew only an MBA will be the right fit in my profile and will help me accelerate my career to the next level. Now, that I'm half-way done with this challenging yet exciting journey, I'm even more confident that pursuing an MBA was the best decision that I made. The network that I have built in only 11 months is immense. I have learnt more than I thought I could and its only the beginning. I'm very excited and hopeful to see where this opportunity takes me in future.

Why DeGroote?

DeGroote has been life-changing for me. Right from the faculty, and the student experience team all the way to the partnering firms from the industry and the alumni network DeGroote has, is phenomenal. Here, the faculty and staff are so inclusive, collaborative and supportive. The CPD team at DeGroote and the Student Success Centre has always been there when I needed any advice or support. They make you feel at home especially when you’re far from your own.

What piece of advice would you give to anyone considering doing their MBA at DeGroote?
