I'm surprised by the immense amount of opportunities one gets for self-development. From participating in National/ International Case Competitions to interacting with Industry Leaders at networking sessions, I have been enjoying every step of my journey at DeGroote.

Why DeGroote?

Attending DeGroote’s MBA Information session and further interacting with one of the Admission Managers, Ms. Rita Chen, re-affirmed by belief in DeGroote’s MBA. I was certain that the school will help me actualize my goals. I was intrigued by DeGroote’s small cohort, personalized learning environment, collaborative culture, unparalleled reputation, and strong Alumni Network. I researched and read about the Graduate Business Student Association and the Student Clubs, and was sure that they would play a central role in my self-development through participation in various activities.

Why an MBA?

As a Business Development Manager in the past, I gained enriched experience with planning and overseeing marketing initiatives. The experience inspired me to take future studies to strengthen my skills and understanding of the marketing world. An MBA will certainly allow me to gain an understanding of concepts in business and economics that drive marketing efforts.
