One tweet earns $10,000 for new MBA student
One tweet is all it took for Megan Lynch to earn a $10,000 tuition credit.
“With an Arts and Media @SchulichMBA I hope to add an A to that Go #AGO #GoSchulich,” MBA candidate Lynch tweeted on April 17th.
Lynch’s tweet gained her entry to the GO Schulich contest that took place this year. The contest asked participants answer the question “Where will you go with your Schulich degree?”. From there she was randomly selected as the winner of the grand prize scholarship.
Reflecting on that special commute to work, when she entered the contest, Lynch still cannot believe she won. “I was really shocked. It was a great way to reaffirm that I was making the right choice,” she said.
The Calgary native will be entering the Arts and Media MBA Specialization at Schulich School of Business in September 2015. “I was doing some research and saw all the specializations that Schulich offers and that was it. Arts and Media was exactly what I was looking for,” she said.
Lynch is striving to join the Art Gallery of Ontario. But for now, she is excited to be lifting off on an academic adventure.
