MSc International Business 2018


MSc '18, Ivey Business School

Briefly, describe your background and profile. Think about how Ivey is/will complement your own personal background and experience.

After completing my four-year undergrad degree in Kinesiology I wanted to pivot into business. The Ivey MSc was a perfect program to do so. I hope to one day combine my two degrees and work in the health care sector, specifically in pharmaceuticals.

Talk about one of your most memorable “Ivey” moments to-date – how does that moment ‘sum-up’ the Ivey experience?

The IGL was one of the most memorable Ivey moments to date. It was full of learning and challenges that allowed me to grow as an individual and also a business person. That is what Ivey is all about, giving you challenges locally and globally to help you improve overall in many facets of your life.

What are your plans after Ivey? What do you hope to achieve by graduation?

I hope to be smarter by graduation. Smarter in the sense of business knowledge and also how I carry myself. Many people will write that they wish to have a job by graduation, but for me I hope to have gained knowledge and grown as a person professionally and academically.

What advice would you give to prospective students considering Ivey?

Dive head first, get involved, and work hard!
