“When you get an EMBA from Ivey, you’re not just getting a world-class education, you’re getting access to a vast network of alumni who are there for you every step of the way. The support I have received during this program has been invaluable.”
What is it about your grad program that enables you to thrive and be successful?
The professors have been a great resource for me, both in class and outside of class, and they are always there to answer questions and help in any way they can. Perhaps even more than the professors, the breadth of knowledge and experience of my classmates has really helped me to be successful in both my learning and my career.
Where’s your favourite place on campus to work?
As an Executive MBA student, my classes are held at the Tangerine Leadership Centre in downtown Toronto. They have some great meeting rooms available for us to use at any time. It’s my favorite place to work with my learning team.
What’s the best advice you could give to someone considering applying to your graduate program?
Talk to everyone you know! You can read all the brochures you want, attend as many classes as you can, but the real information comes from current students and former grads. That was the deciding factor for me.
What is your “dream” career?
I am currently the Director of Operations for PipeSak Incorporated. We’re a small, innovative, family-run business that operates in the international oil and gas pipeline industry. Having the opportunity to work with my family on a daily basis is already a “dream” career for me. The main reason for completing my EMBA at Ivey is to help our business grow into a successful, multi-generational corporation.
