Why did you choose JMSB? The combination of the MBA and CFA designations in John Molson's MBA in Investment Management program was the main reason for choosing JMSB. The MBA courses will allow me to acquire advanced management skills, while the CFA designation will increase my credibility in the finance industry. Hence, this program would significantly enhance my career options for the future.
Highlights of your program so far? The level of attention and education in the MBA/CFA program is world-class. I plan to leverage these advantages to have the best chance to break my way into capital markets
Favourite place in Montreal? The top of Mount Royal! Fascinating view from up there.
Future aspirations: My short-term goal is to break into the capital markets through the corporate banking sector. However, my long-term goal is to become a finance leader for a multinational corporation.
What do you wish you knew before coming to JMSB? I wish if I knew the importance and the great advantage of being able to speak French here in Montreal.
