I came to Queen’s MBA Program because ...

Being someone with experience working as an independent musician (yes, I have talent. No, I did not make any money), and with aspiring startups in a college business incubator, it is fair to say that I am drawn to people. The desire to exist within collaborative and forward-looking environments is a major driver of my career choices, as well as is the foremost element that drove me to choose to attend Queen’s for my MBA.

The idea of team-based learning and all-angles coaching was Queen’s main attraction for me, and after two months of the program, I can fairly say that these promises have held up.

That does not mean that things are always peachy.

Teams have their ups and downs (mine is no exception) and there is learning to be had in experiencing both peaks. Coaching is prevalent in the program, but you may need to meet with several career or executive coaches in order to get all of the support that you require.

What I have consistently felt is the unconditional support of everyone involved in this program – the students, administration, faculty, and coaches. When people truly want one another to succeed, I believe that chances of success improve exponentially. Prior to beginning the MBA program, I must admit that I was somewhat worried about it being highly competitive. The Queen’s MBA has been anything but and I could not be more thankful to be going through this experience with this community.
