Education comprises two essential aspects, the theory and the hands-on approach. For one MBA student, the hands-on, experiential learning was where he wanted to put his focus. Aws Al-Hasani, a financial planner who joined the John Molson MBA program in Winter 2019, has over a decade of experience in banking, primarily trading stocks and options within that time.
Soon after starting his MBA, Aws decided to join the Entrepreneurship Club inspired by a conversation with Ravi Sapra, the current club president, about the direction the club wanted to take.
John Molson recognizes the importance of building bridges between MBA graduates and entrepreneurship. As such, it offers a seminar in Entrepreneurship and Small Business, as well as a Business Ownership course that focuses on ‘re-preneurship’ (the purchase or taking over of existing businesses).
“Within the Entrepreneurship Club, we knew we wanted to be involved with start-ups that were already past the concept stage. So we reached out directly to District 3.”
