“My courses taken at Schulich truly gave me a new angle in observing and understanding the dynamic world of finance.”
- MBA Program Details
On my transition across the world to Schulich:
Coming to Canada was my first time going abroad in my entire life. Owing to the diversity of Schulich, the openness of my fellow Schuligans, it was easy to make friends. I now love the city of Toronto for its lovely people, supportive and diverse culture and beautiful seasons.
One skill that I graduated with that I find myself constantly using at work:
I’ve developed the mindset and habit of saying “it depends” to begin to answer business questions.
One fact about me that might surprise you:
I am an energetic volunteer. I once walked 50km to raise funds for a children’s welfare charity in China.
My Schulich experience described in one sentence:
I enjoyed culture shock in the best way, from meeting people from all over the world.
