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

I was looking for a program that didn’t take me away from the workplace for too long and the Queen’s MBA one-year timeframe fit perfectly. In addition, the Smith School of Business’ reputation as the best business school in Canada made it a no-brainer choice.

Prior to starting the Queen’s MBA, I was working in the mining sector 4+ years and I was looking for a change. I knew that the Queen’s MBA would provide an unparalleled learning environment. The career services coaching would best position me to make a career change. The team-based learning approach allowed me to work with a diverse set of individuals who I am able to leverage to grow as a professional. Lastly, the final factor in choosing Queen’s was the elite alumni that I could tap into and make connections in my desired industry.
