JP Gladu

“Smith’s EMBA program was the perfect fit to help me grow my education and experience in business, while I lead my First Nation in its economic aspirations. It will challenge you in all ways, with teamwork and rapport being fundamental, just like in any work environment. There are exceptional people in your class sitting next to you with amazing backgrounds, many will become lifelong friends. Immediately after the completion of the program, my career took a sharp trajectory, competing and earning my spot on the national stage as an Indigenous business leader. Propelling a national business organization forward for eight years of exceptional growth may not have been possible without my education from a top tier business program.”

JP Gladu, EMBA

Women and the MBA

At Smith School of Business, we recognize the need to enable more women to ascend to the senior ranks of management. An MBA can help break down the barriers that exist for women looking to advance their careers. Smith is making a concerted effort to address this issue. In addition to hosting Women and the MBA events across Canada, we have also implemented a number of initiatives to attract and support women within our programs.

Each year Smith School of Business is pleased to offer the 30% Club Scholarship to a highly qualified woman entering the Smith Executive MBA Program. This scholarship – which covers 50% of the program tuition – is offered in partnership with the 30% Club, a global organization dedicated to accelerating the representation of women at senior levels in business.
