McMaster University (Honours Bachelor of Commerce)
Class of 2024

After working full time for about 3 years, I developed a better understanding of where I wanted my career to go. I wanted to step into a leadership role, and it was clear that the MBA was the right path for me to take to get where I wanted to be. I wanted to continue working while I studied and DeGroote’s accelerated part time MBA program aligned perfectly with what I was looking for. Since starting my MBA in Fall 2022, I have successfully been able to maintain my full time role and part time educational commitments.

Why DeGroote?

I am a proud McMaster and DeGroote alumna after completing my undergraduate degree in Commerce. Throughout my academic journey at DeGroote, I had the pleasure of learning from dedicated and passionate professors who truly cared about the learning experience they delivered. I chose DeGroote for my MBA as I was confident, I would be provided with the same enriching and memorable experience. As I look forward to graduating in 2024, I can truly say I am thankful for the decision I made. I have had the opportunity to learn from engaging and talented Professors who have integrated their own professional experiences into lectures. My learning experience has had a profound impact on my personal development as a leader.
