In a life replete with academic markers and milestones, perhaps none stands out more than the year in which we complete our undergraduate degree. The year we secure our “Class of” moniker.
The four-year journey to get there is one of immense growth and self-discovery. They are the years where we unearth passions, strengthen our capacity for resilience, develop lifelong friendships, and explore the boundaries of our comfort zones. Simply put, they are the years where we start to picture who we want to be in this world, and develop a plan to make it happen.
This September, Schulich welcomes the i/BBA Class of 2020 to campus. 248 young women, and 181 young men from 20 different countries will set out on this exciting path as classes begin September 8th. We caught up with a few of them during O-Week to ask a question that only seemed natural, given their anticipated year of graduation:
“What 2020 vision do you have for yourself?”
After graduating from Schulich in 2020, I see myself very well prepared for whatever challenges I have to face in my future career, as well as well-equipped with the knowledge I’ll need in order to accomplish the most daring and ambitious goals of mine in the field of marketing.
– Karolina Devesen, iBBA 2020
I want a career in professional accountancy. I’m considering a 5-year plan where I complete the Master of Accounting (MAcc) after my BBA, and go on to write the CFE.
– Tosin Alawode, BBA 2020
I hope to take my iBBA degree around the world. My ultimate goal is to explore what shapes European economies, and to educate people new to Canada about personal finance.
– Nil Harxhi, iBBA 2020
By 2020, I plan to be a well-rounded graduate who has experienced everything Schulich has to offer, from serving on the UBS, to participating in club and networking events, and even playing on Schulich intramural teams!
– Moyosore Adesina, BBA 2020
Best of luck as you start your Schulich journey, Class of 2020. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish over the next four years!
