Why DeGroote?

My major reason for choosing DeGroote was the co-op program and its network. The co-op program was excellent for helping me build business acumen and professional skills while also allowing me to build professional relationships to further my career. I also like how employers are around the GTA making it easier to travel.

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

Network! Ensure to do your research in the jobs you are applying to, create a list of recruiters you can reach out to and try your best to set up a 15-20 minute coffee chat a couple of times a week.
