I was looking to change careers, however given my lack of experience in the professional world, I felt the need to continue my learning develop the necessary skills to become a high functioning professional in a completely new industry.

Work Experience during the DeGroote MBA (Co-op or Summer Internship)

  • Business Technology Analyst – Deloitte

Why DeGroote?

As a McMaster alumna, I felt extremely supported by the community and I wanted to replicate that safe academic space for my masters. Since arriving, everyone from students to staff has been so welcoming. I can confidently say that joining DeGroote has been one of the best decisions I’ve made so far!

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

My advice to anyone considering joining DeGroote is to reach out and try to have as many conversations with current staff and students to get a strong understanding of the program and culture at DeGroote. The best way to learn about anything is to reach out – it also helps to practice networking and building professional relations.
