Why did you decide to do an Executive MBA?
I have worked in the Home Health Care industry for sixteen years, rising to the Director-level by both creating and capitalizing on opportunities for advancement. I decided to do an Executive MBA in order to challenge myself and expand my business knowledge while networking with other like-minded professionals. Through Ivey, I have acquired new skills and even greater confidence in applying my previous experience for all-around success.
Why did you choose Ivey?
I chose the Ivey Executive MBA Program because it offered the best fit for my lifestyle, given current workload and travel obligations. As well, I was attracted to the case-method learning within group settings, knowing that this approach would complement my strengths as a strong communicator and collaborator.
What benefits have you seen so far in your career?
Shoppers Drug Mart has undergone a number of dramatic changes since I started the EMBA Program. As a result, I have had a tremendous opportunity to apply my expanded knowledge in my day-to-day role and contribute more to the organization. I feel well equipped to adapt to any future changes in our business and look forward to growing with the company.
