Why did you choose John Molson School of Business? An MBA is more about “Changing the way a person deals with a situation” rather than any kind of conceptual learning. The biggest reason for choosing this school over other schools was the experiential courses being offered. It enables students to work on real-world problems and learn to take a holistic view of situation. This enables an individual to grow as a business leader of future
Highlights of your program so far? Life at the school has been great fun so far. I have participated in numerous business case competitions. I am writing a business case which is a unique opportunity for MBA students. I have been selected as an Organizer for 40th John Molson International Case Competition, the world’s largest MBA case competition scheduled to happen in January 2022.
Favourite place in Montreal? Beaver Lake on top of Mont-Royal!
Future aspirations: : By the virtue of my previous work, I have gained a lot of experience in core manufacture sectors & with the skills learned during tthe MBA, I aspire to become a management consultant. I am also open to explore the world of Product Management too.
What do you wish you knew before starting the program? I knew beforehand that Montreal is one of the top 5 best places to live in the world and Canadians in general are wonderful people. That being said, I am mesmerized by the beauty of the city, it gives more of a European feel rather than a North American city feel.
