EMBA 2015, Ivey Business School
Director of Organizational Strategy and Initiatives - City of London
Why did you decide to do an Executive MBA?
I wanted to continue my education and broaden my perspectives in general business management. I also believe sound business acumen is required as much in law enforcement and government as in the financial sector. I believe an MBA from Ivey provides the tools to foster critical leadership skills for a complex and fast-changing economic environment.
Why did you choose Ivey?
The Ivey Business School is recognized globally and I wanted to leverage a first-class education that would build a foundation for future success in public service.
What benefits have you seen so far in your career?
Ivey helped me develop strategic management skills to better handle organizational challenges. The confidence I have gained implementing and managing change is a direct result of the case-method and lessons learned therein. Although formal classes have ended, the Ivey experience continues to impart new understanding, which for me is invaluable.

My social network has grown exponentially. I have made some lifelong friends and many new business associates through the intimacy of the learning teams.
