Vishwaprakash Sahoo

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

I needed a solid business education to acquire all-round business abilities and hone management skills to enable my transition from IT service consulting to an IT strategy consulting role.

Since I wanted to make the transition in roles within the IT industry, I looked for a one-year MBA program, and the Queen’s MBA is one of the best and highly reputed one-year MBA programs in North-America. The unique team-based learning at Smith School of Business provides an opportunity for me to enhance my ability to work in and lead teams. The access to a Team Coach, a Career Coach, an Executive Coach and a Lifestyle Coach is an aspect unique to the Smith School of Business and helps candidates reach their full potential.

The small class size fosters an environment to create close relationships with classmates, professors, career coaching staff, and alumni. Smith School of Business has a highly collaborative and supportive alumni network. The alumni are an excellent guide during your career search, and they actively partner with the school to help current students.

Last but certainly not the least, the staff and students here are very helpful and collaborative, making the transition from my home country to Canada much easier.

I wish you the best of luck in your application process and am happy to answer any questions that you might have.
