“The Schulich Arts and Media MBA gave me the tools that I needed to apply my background in film and to pursue a career about which I am deeply passionate. The experience allowed me to launch my career in a competitive field at a time when jobs were scarce -- I have no doubt the Arts and Media MBA made the difference.”
