Schulich Master of Finance graduate shares his personal experience with the recession in the Financial Post
Schulich Master of Finance graduate Kiel Depoe’s (MF ’10) personal experience with the recession was not only about looking back to recent history, it also changed his outlook moving forward, wrote Denise Deveau in the Financial Post article, “Global recession forced business schools to focus on exposed warts, silos” on Nov. 25:
For Kiel Depoe, the 2008 market collapse is what drove him back to pursuing his business studies at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto. “It was a big factor, mainly because I couldn’t join the workforce straight out of university.”
Having graduated with his Master of Finance in 2010, he is now an investment-banking associate with TD Securities Inc. in Calgary. With the recession so closely behind them when he joined Schulich, he says it became a focal point in his studies.
