MSc International Business 2018

Degree

MSc 2018, Ivey Business School

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

I am a career-focused individual with knowledge in aspects of human resource, business management, and international business who possesses the ability to use my initiative to work as part of a team. Being at Ivey has given me the opportunity to interact with and learn not only from professors but also from classmates with different backgrounds, which helps to complement my own personal background and experience.

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

One of my most memorable Ivey moments to date is my global lab placement in India. This moment sums up the Ivey experience because it was one of the best ways to really prepare myself for success in the real world in the future and it was a once in a lifetime learning experience that truly showed what it is like to live and work in a different part of the world, striving to adapt to the different cultures while also forming working relationships and learning as much as you can.

Think about your first few days and weeks in the program – what were your thoughts? Feelings? Concerns? How do you feel now?

Thinking back to my first few days and weeks in the program, I thought I would not be able to fit in and felt out of place at times. I also felt like I would not be able to understand the case method teaching process and was worried I would not be able to fully adapt and contribute in class. At this moment I feel much more comfortable and at ease with the program and my peers. I am very happy at Ivey and with the classes and the great support I receive from Career Management Services who are always there to help when needed.
