Prior to pursuing the MBA, I was not sure what field or industry I wanted to work in. The MBA program has opened many doors for myself, especially through my co-op experiences. If it were not for the MBA program, I would not have known that I would want to pursue a career in financial crime investigations and become a Forensic Accountant. At the end of my MBA journey, I will not have only gained a degree but I will have also gained a new outlook on my career prospects.

Why DeGroote?

As I had already completed my undergraduate degree at DeGroote, deciding to come back to pursue an MBA was an easy choice. I knew I would be coming back to a supportive community from the faculty, students, and administration that are willing to be there through every step of my academic journey. The co-op program offered at DeGroote also appealed to me due to the ability to gain work experience while pursuing an MBA.
