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

I was ready for a change in my career ;and ready to explore other opportunities. After looking at other schools, I quickly realized that the Queen's MBA was the program for me. During my first visit to Smith School of Business, I felt connected with the school, current students, and faculty. The collaborative environment and team-based learning has allowed me to grow not just academically, but also in leadership, interpersonal and professional skills. Upon graduation, I hope to work in the Canadian technology industry, where I will be able to connect my nanotechnology engineering skills with my business skills. Queen’s has a specialization for entrepreneurship & innovation which will help me develop my entrepreneurial skills so I will feel confident entering the technology market in Canada, ensuring new technology exceeds in this fast-paced market.

The small class size also attracted me to Queen’s - this has created an environment of support and honesty, knowing that all your classmates have your back when you need it. It has only been two months into the program, and my classmates have become my family and I know that I can lean on them when I need support with a hug and some laughs. Overall, the support I have received from my faculty and my classmates has been incredible. I very happy with my decision to come to Queen’s, and I am excited for the months to come.
