Work Experience during the DeGroote MBA (Co-op or Summer Internship)
- Business Analyst – CIBC
After completing my undergraduate degree in Engineering in India and working for about 3 years as a strategy manager and consultant, I knew that I wanted to further my career in the field of data analytics. I wanted to be in a position where I could use leverage data to make informed decisions. However, I was unsure how to reach this goal. The MBA (co-op) program at DeGroote provided me with the perfect curriculum which I can shape as per my requirements along with the 3 co-op terms which provide me with a much-needed exposure to the Canadian market. My decision to come to DeGroote was further validated after seeing the dedication of the staff toward the success of every student.
