Why an MBA?
It has always been a dream of mine to pursue a MBA. Throughout my education journey, I knew that a MBA degree would be a necessary step in achieving both my personal and professional goals. With a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and a post-grad as a Research Analyst (RAPP), I knew I had a solid business background, and sought to further develop my skills to enter and thrive within the finance industry.

What has been the highlight of your DeGroote experience so far?
One of my highlights was our final first year course, the Integrated Project. Each group was given the opportunity to work directly with a real client on a current issue that the company was facing. It gave us the chance to apply our knowledge to a real-life situation, particularly our communication skills, which came in handy when speaking with and presenting to our professors and the clients. My group collaborated effectively and worked hard throughout this three-week process. In the end, our client was very pleased with our presentation and decided to proceed with our idea, making us the winning team!
